Mercedes-Benz all electric Urban eTruck starts operator trials 16 February 2017

Mercedes-Benz Trucks is to launch its all-electric heavy-duty truck in a small series.

The truck boasts a 12.8 tonne payload and a 200km electric drive range and is aimed at operators running inner city delivery routes.

RENEWABLE energy takes to the roads in Germany this year with Mercedes-Benz Trucks trialing an all-electric round-towner with customers.

Mercedes-Benz Trucks global head Stefan Buchner says the plan follows a successful premiere of the truck at the International Commercial Vehicle Show in September past year.


"Customer reaction to this vehicle has been outstanding.


"We are now talking to around 20 potential customers from the disposal, foodstuffs and logistics sector", Mercedes-Benz Trucks global head Stefan Buchner says. The truck business hopes the series generation will be on the market by 2020.

The company will record the areas of application during the trial to gather data for comparison. 2017 will now be our year of implementation: "step by step we are developing the vehicles and systems to achieve market maturity".

Details release so far are that 18- and 25-tonne models will soon be available, and will be equipped with refrigerated, dry box and platform bodies. Daimler Trucks is thus covering a wide application portfolio of electric trucks all over the world. It will be necessary to transport goods in urban environments for increasing numbers of people - and with the lowest possible emissions and noise.

The rapid technical development is supporting this trend: Daimler Trucks is expecting the costs for the batteries of an all-electric truck to fall by a factor of 2.5 from 1997 to 2025 - from 500 euros/kWh to 200 euros/kWh.
