The one-year Auckland Inner City Zero Emissions Area Trial would see the integration of the electric trucks into New Zealand’s commercial fleet to deliver goods in the inner city.

The government’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority provided co-funding for the five trucks to support the development of New Zealand’s zero-emission transport fleet.

Owens Transport and Vector OnGas are also taking part in the trial.
