Daimler Trucks has been gathering experience with electric trucks since 2010. In 2017, the FUSO eCanter was delivered to customers in the USA, Japan and Europe in a small production series. Another example is the eActros, which has now been tested by customers in real operation in Europe for two years. In the USA, the first fully electric Freightliner eCascadia and eM2 are being tested in practice.
The ePowertrain platform is being developed and supported jointly by all Daimler truck developers the world over. This modular system is designed especially for the requirements of heavy-duty and medium-weight trucks. It will form the basis both for the development of the fuel cell and also for battery drive and it is geared for the future to be adapted to the needs of different markets and requirements.
