DICV exploring clean fuel options for local market

A variety of cleaner fuel sources, including CNG, biodiesel, hydrogen fuel cells, and electric trucks and buses, are being investigated for the domestic market by Daimler India Commercial Vehicles (DICV), the regional division of the largest truck manufacturer in the world. DICV is looking to transition to carbon-free transportation and will be looking to shift from a product organisation to a mobility organisation, with all necessary parts currently being put in place. The industry will reportedly transition from diesel to biodiesel, gas, electric, and hydrogen fuel cells, with all three coexisting for a while.

DICV has long-term bets on electric vehicles or hydrogen fuel cells, but the business is keenly monitoring the switch to CNG. With fuel costs steadily climbing, CNG penetration in the 9 to 25 tonne intermediate and medium commercial vehicle market has begun to exceed 25 per cent. Since the infrastructure for CNG filling stations has spread throughout the nation, acceptance has increased, and DICV is missing out on the present shift due to lack of alternatives.
