This month marks a momentous milestone for us. Drive to Zero was officially recognized as a new Campaign of the Clean Energy Ministerial under the Electric Vehicle Initiative, paving the way for much closer engagement with a number of nations. Canada, Chile, China, Finland, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden have all agreed to work together with Drive to Zero to accelerate the deployment of zero- and near-zero emission commercial vehicles.
Nine nations on four continents have agreed to work collaboratively to grow zero-emission commercial vehicle manufacturing, infrastructure and deployment at home and globally. The Global Commercial Vehicle Drive to Zero (Drive to Zero)—a program of CALSTART and a new campaign of the Clean Energy Ministerial under the Electric Drive Initiative—is expanding this international push.
