High demand for class 7 trucks propelled by enhanced fuel efficiency

Class 7 heavy-duty trucks market in Europe valued at over USD 1.5 billion in 2019. Low body weight and enhanced maneuverability, as compared to class 8 trucks are the factors driving the regional market demand. Low body weight also significantly enhances the fuel consumption in these trucks, spurring the adoption in day-to-day transportation activities.

The growing deployment of 6x2 axle trucks to transport heavy loads on smooth & paved road conditions is set to support the market size. This axle configuration consists of a single drive axle with two-powered wheels among six-wheel positions, thereby reducing the vehicle weight, saving fuel, and reducing the overall purchase cost of the truck.

The heavy-duty trucks market participants are launching new models of class 7 trucks integrated with technologically advanced features to cater to the demand from various industry sectors. For instance, in January 2020, Mack Trucks launched the MD7, its new class 7 heavy-duty truck model to expand its product lineup.
