Organizations like DHL, UPS and even Zion National Park are electrifying large vehicle fleets. New York is transitioning to emissions-free fleets and 12 cities worldwide have committed to buying only electric buses by 2025.

Electric buses will be 40 percent of the market by 2022, thanks to major financial, environmental and operational benefits. They have much lower operating costs and can already be cheaper, on the basis of total cost of ownership, than conventional buses today.

Here's a quick roundup of potential game changers in trucks and buses - but there are many more recent announcements internationally as well!
