Wall Street Journal today has article that after Jan 1, 2024, California will require only zero emission trucks serve the state’s ports. That probably means either electric or hydrogen fueled trucks. Article reports that trucking companies are buying diesel trucks while they still can to get ready for the new requirement.
They mention Nikola and Volvo Trucks as the suppliers. Pacific Drayage has 20 hydrogen powered trucks on order from Nikola due over the next six months (and 117 diesel trucks). Both companies had trucks recalled due to possible fires. Harbor Trucking Association says fewer than 160 zero emission trucks are now in service in Southern California.
Wikipedia reports that Volvo, a Swedish company is now owned by Geely Holding Group, a Chinese company. Volvo gained its first plant in the United States, the New River Valley plant in Dublin, Virginia, after acquiring the assets of the White Motor Corporation. They also own Mack Trucks. They sold Volvo car manufacturing in 1999 to Ford, who then sold it to Geely. Volvo Car is now listed on the Stockholm NASQAQ but Geely owns the majority of shares. Both companies use the Volvo logo.
