This week, during COP28 in Dubai, Cemex unveiled the first fully electric, zero-emissions ready-mix truck in the Middle East.
The truck is fully operational and has the capacity to transport a full load of concrete. It is equipped with a state-of-the-art 350kWh battery which allows it to complete an average full workday with a single recharge.
Cemex is actively collaborating with partners and manufactures to discover, pilot, learn, and scale the long-term solutions needed for hybrid and zero-emission vehicles to be available at scale.
At the same time, Cemex is adding trucks powered by renewable diesel and natural gas which have a carbon footprint that is 70% and 25% lower than regular diesel, respectively. These critical transitional technologies will enable a reduction in carbon emissions in the short term as heavy-duty electric vehicles become viable at scale.
