A US study found that sedans, SUVs, and pickup trucks, accounted for 58% of U.S. transportation sector emissions. Pickup trucks accounted for 14% of light-duty vehicle sales in the United States in 2020, and the market share of both pickups and SUVs has grown in recent years.

As the industry moves towards electrification, what does that mean for pickups and SUV?

University of Michigan and Ford Motor Company conducted the research and found that light-duty, battery-electric vehicles are around 64% less in their cradle-to-grave life cycle greenhouse gas emissions than internal-combustion-engine counterparts.
