Sep 21, 2021, Stuttgart/Wörth am Rhein – Today several vehicle innovations were presented to the public by Mercedes-Benz Trucks. In doing so, the focus was especially on the electrification of the product portfolio. The company identifies with the Paris Climate Agreement. Moreover and its aim of decarbonizing the sector. All for CO2-neutral transport. Especially on the roads by 2050. For that is the ultimate goal.
The eActros for heavy distribution haulage, presented recently in June 2021. Moreover they scheduled to go into full-scale production in Wörth from October 2021. For that’s as well as the eEconic for municipal use to follow in the second half of 2022. Then are already fully electrified and locally CO2-neutral. Then intensive testing is still underway at present. That’s after which the eEconic will move on to practical trials with customers.
The key technical specifications are largely identical to those of the eActros. For the eEconic waste collection vehicle is designed to cover the vast majority. That’s from the typical collection routes. Those run by an Econic with no need for interim charging. Even before full-scale production has started a waste disposal company in Denmark has already placed an order for eleven eEconic vehicles.
From 2024, the eActros LongHaul which is also battery-electric is planned to be ready for series production. Vehicles will also enable locally CO2-neutral road freight haulage on long-distance routes.
In conclusion, at today’s Mercedes-Benz Trucks event, “Shaping the Now & Next 2021”. Because the manufacturer not only provided information about its fully electric vehicles. I mean they also presented consulting services such as eConsulting. Finally their strategic partnerships in the areas of fleet integration. As well as charging infrastructure and also grid connection. MB Trucks also presented its latest models. I mean from the classic diesel segment. For that’s such as the Actros F, Actros L and Edition 2.
