eTruck Launch! ... the eActros by Mercedes-Benz
On 30 June 2021 our CSR-Partner Mercedes-Benz Trucks celebrated the world premiere of its battery-electric eActros for heavy-duty distribution haulage. Mercedes-Benz Trucks is heralding a new era with the launch of the first electric series-production truck with a star.
“We have to acknowledge that transport is a part of the problem when it comes to climate change. At the same time, we can and we will be part of the solution. We start with our eActros that has covered more than half a million kilometers on public roads”, points out Karin Rådström, Member of the Board of Management at Daimler Truck AG and responsible for Mercedes-Benz Trucks. Rådström is convinced of the concept and market potential of the eActros: “The eActros and its dedicated services are a big step for Mercedes-Benz Trucks and for our customers towards CO2-neutral transport.”
The eActros features a range of up to 400 kilometers; a battery capacity of up to 420 kWh and impressive vehicle dynamics and great ride comfort thanks to e-axle with two powerful electric motors. The quiet and emission-free electric drive means the truck can also be used for night deliveries and entry into inner-cities with driving bans for diesel vehicles.
With the eActros, Mercedes-Benz Trucks is not only keeping a close eye on active safety, for example in the form of systems installed as standard such as MirrorCam, Sideguard Assist S1R or the fifth generation of Active Brake Assist (ABA) with pedestrian detection, but also on challenges associated with electric vehicles and their high-voltage systems.
