The Global Electric Truck Chassis Market size was estimated to grow from USD 0.4 billion in 2023 to USD 5.1 billion by 2030. It will register a CAGR of 32.5% during the forecast period. The chassis is an essential component of the vehicle, also referred to as the vehicle's support structure or frame. The chassis is essential for maintaining the drive’s comfort and structural component durability. Compared to conventional combustion engines, electric truck chassis offer a platform that is more stable, effective, quieter, cleaner, and safe. Electric truck chassis can be tailored according to specific applications such as regional distribution centers, long-distance transportation, or even heavy construction sites. The chassis serves as the framework that holds everything together. Thus, it is a frame that serves as mounting points for additional parts like the controller, motor, and battery.
Rising concerns about pollution, particularly from automobiles, have compelled governments in several countries to take some measures to keep regional or national pollution under control. As a result, investments in alternative fuels and electric vehicles are increasing.
Insight by Number of Axles
Based on the Number of Axles, the Global Electric Truck Chassis Market is segregated into Double-Axle Chassis, Tri-Axle Chassis, Four-Axle Chassis, and Others. Double Axle Chassis is expected to have significant growth during the forecast period to enhance energy efficiency and drive sustainability.
Insight by Chassis Material
Based on Chassis Material, the Global Electric Truck Chassis Market is divided into Aluminum Alloy, Mild Steel, High-Speed Steel, and Others. Aluminum Alloy is expected to have the fastest growth owing to the increased adoption of strong and lightweight solutions as the government is emphasizing minimizing CO2 emissions.
Insight by Chassis Type
Based on Chassis Type, the Global Electric Truck Chassis Market is segmented into Backbone Chassis, Ladder Chassis, Monocoque Chassis, Modular Chassis, and Others. The monocoque chassis segment is expected to have the fastest growth owing to the increased adoption of electric vehicles. It offers less emission and makes vehicles safe and fuel-efficient.
Insight on Truck Classification
Based on Truck Classification, the Global Electric Truck Chassis Market is segregated into Light Duty (Class 1 to Class 2), Medium Duty (Class 3 to Class 6), and Heavy Duty (Class 7 & Class 8). Medium Duty is expected to have a high CAGR during the forecast period as medium-sized trucks are increasingly deployed to transport goods for short distances. Moreover, the mounting investment in logistics, infrastructure, e-commerce, and construction sector will propel the market demand for medium-sized electric trucks globally. The BYD 6F is the world's first commercially available all-electric class 6 cab and chassis capable of traversing an entire route.
Insight by Installation
Based on Installation, the Global Electric Truck Chassis Market is bifurcated into Company-Fitted and Retrofitted. Company-fitted dominates the market. Truck manufacturers are manufacturing electric vehicles in response to an increase in government measures to phase out conventional trucks and replace them with zero-emission alternatives.
