Atlas Public Policy assessed the current and planned production capacity for class 4-8 heavy-duty zero-emission vehicles in the United States based on publicly available information from vehicle manufacturers and news sources. The report discusses manufacturers plans to increase manufacturing capacity for heavy-duty zero-emission vehicles through building new facilities, expanding existing facilities, and the recalibration of production at facilities that are capable of producing both internal combustion and zero-emission vehicles side-by-side. 

​The report finds that combined with current and planned production capacity for zero-emission vehicles, recalibrating all production of internal combustion vehicles at zero-emission-capable facilities could yield an annual production capacity of over 295,000 heavy-duty zero-emission vehicles, which represents 59 percent of annual U.S. heavy-duty vehicle sales.

Atlas thanks the International Council on Clean Transportation for funding this report and providing supplementary data.
