Mercedes-Benz’s electric truck for heavy distribution operations is finally here. The Mercedes-Benz Urban eTruck has a range of up to 200 km and a total weight of up to 26 tonnes. This semi truck doesn’t make a whole lot of noise and has less impact on the environment.
Here is what the company had to say about this development:
With the Mercedes-Benz Urban eTruck, we are underlining our intention to systematically developing the electric drive in trucks to series production maturity. This means that we will begin to integrate customers, so as to gain valuable joint experience with respect to the operating ranges and the charging infrastructure in daily transport operations. Because we think the entry of this technology into the series production is already conceivable at the beginning of the next decade.
