ACTROS EVs Presented At The IAA Transport Conference In Hanover
Daimler Truck, one of the most viral commercial vehicle manufacturers, has unveiled its first battery-powered heavy–duty electric truck - Mercedes-Benz eActros LongHaul - with a new electronic axle and a 500 Km power reserve. Mercedes-Benz will produce eActros LongHaul both in the form of a truck and in a rigid version from the moment of launch, and serial production will be carried out at the Wörth truck company plant.
The new product – one of three new EVs presented at the IAA Transport conference in Hanover, has a battery capacity of more than 600 kWh from three battery packs powering two electric motors as part of a new electronic axis that can generate continuous power of 400 kW and peak power of more than 600 kW. Along with the e-Actros LongHaul, Daimler Truck also presents the electric Mercedes-Benz eActros 300 in a tractor version for flexible distribution vehicles with heavy lifting capacity and announced the electric Mercedes-Benz eAtego for the medium-duty segment.
Since the last IAA four years ago, we have been making full progress on the transition to CO2-neutral transport, this year we already have eight production cars with clean electric batteries in our portfolio.Martin Daum, CEO of Daimler Truck
Mercedes-Benz Trucks has also announced plans to expand its range of vehicles to include production trucks with hydrogen fuel cell drives in the second half of the decade. The goal of developing the company's hydrogen-powered trucks is a flight range of up to 1,000 kilometers. The first prototypes of the Mercedes-Benz GenH2 truck are already undergoing thorough tests both on the company's own test track and on public roads.
