Discover what eMobility from Mercedes-Benz Trucks has to offer for your fleet and company: from stop-and-go in city centres to long-distance logistics, every vehicle opens up completely new possibilities as part of an integrated solution.
Onwards into eMobility.
Charged for tomorrow.
Welcome to the era of profitable, electric transport logistics. The eActros LongHaul is going to set new standards in battery electric long-distance transport, and will be our profitable, sustainable and reliable integrated solution with a well-balanced drive output. Thanks to its new powertrain, the standard eActros LongHaul will offer a range of up to 500 kilometres without the need for interim charging. Megawatt charging will enable the batteries to be charged from 20 to 80 percent in significantly less than 30 minutes. The eActros LongHaul is therefore equipped for the majority of foreseeable long-haul transport applications. With the eActros LongHaul as an integrated solution, you can benefit from eConsulting, Mercedes-Benz Uptime in the repair and maintenance contract, Fleetboard Charge Management, and many other tailor-made services. The eActros LongHaul will be ready for series production from 2024 onwards – but you can already take a look at it at the IAA Transportation trade fair.
A single battery charge will give the eActros LongHaul a range of around 500 kilometres – keeping deployment with the first Mercedes-Benz eTruck profitable on long-haul routes.
The eActros LongHaul allows rapid loading and easy handling. In the future, megawatt charging will enable the batteries to be charged from 20 to 80 percent in well under 30 minutes. With the joint venture between Daimler Trucks, TRATON GROUP and Volvo Group, we want to play our part in supporting an ever-expanding charging infrastructure. This will make charging mere child’s play.
As part of an integrated solution, you will receive consulting services for optimum vehicle use so that you can optimise the total cost of ownership.
Truck Innovation Award for the eActros LongHaul.
"A new chapter towards e-mobility” - this is the verdict of the 2023 Truck Innovation Award's panel the eActros LongHaul. The decisive factors were the innovative overall technological concept with LFP battery technology and a new e-axle, as well as the high pace in development: The eActros LongHaul is expected to start customer testing in 2023. The jury also highlighted the compact dimensions of the semitrailer tractor. The Truck Innovation Award is presented by the panel of the "International Truck of the Year" award.
Sustainable, future-oriented and silent.
The eActros 300 and eActros 400 are more than just trucks. They individually form part of an integrated solution, one which, along with the eTruck and its traditional services, also includes eConsulting and innovative, digital solutions. The trucks will offer a range of up to 300 km3006 or 400 km3002 – all thanks to the highly efficient ePowertrain. With their greatly reduced noise emissions, they offer their drivers and other road users a new level of comfort when it comes to inner-city traffic and urban life. With the eActros 300 and eActros 400, you also benefit from comprehensive eConsulting as part of an integrated eMobility solution. This includes route analysis, incentive management and electro-specific digital services like Mercedes-Benz Uptime, charging management, and service contracts.
eActros 300 and eActros 400.
With their wide range of safety systems, the eActros 300 and eActros 400 are bound to impress. For the first time, fifth-generation Active Brake Assist285, 287 has been integrated with a combination of a radar and camera system. It can independently initiate braking within the system limits, not only at the tail end of traffic jams, but also when approaching pedestrians so that collisions can be prevented. The turning assistant can issue a warning in critical situations when turning right.
eActros 300 semitrailer tractor.
The eActros 300 as a semitrailer tractor expands the range of applications of the eActros in heavy-duty distribution transport – especially in urban environments. Like the eActros 300 and eActros 400 models, the new eActros 300 semitrailer boasts an M cab. Three battery packs, each with 112 kWh3005 installed capacity, enable a range of up to 220 km3013. The powertrain is identical to that of the eActros 300 and therefore also delivers 400 kW peak power and 330 kW continuous power. The vehicle can tow all common European semitrailers, taking into account the maximum permissible total towing length. Like the eActros 300 and the eActros 400, the vehicle is offered as part of an integrated solution including consulting and charging infrastructure solutions. What's more, along with the eActros, Mercedes-Benz Trucks is also providing its customers with comprehensive digital services tailored to eTrucks.

Answers to the most frequently asked questions about electromobility.
What are the best arguments for eMobility?
- Mobility and logistics with a secure future, for example where there are driving bans in urban areas.
- Sustainable mobility with locally CO₂-neutral travel and completely CO₂-neutral operation if powered by 100 % green electricity.
- Increase in overall efficiency – electric vehicles provide far higher drive efficiency than diesel.
- Reductions in noise emissions as well as the beneficial rules for electric trucks, e.g. delivery times in pedestrian zones.
- Improved driver comfort and better driving experience in electric trucks.
What role do electric trucks play in the long-term strategy of Mercedes‑Benz Trucks?
- Electrifying the commercial fleet is a key element of our long-term strategy.
- Mercedes-Benz Trucks is unequivocally committed to playing a leading role in this technology.
- Converting the fleet to alternative drive forms is extremely important to us.
How can I charge my eTruck?
- Generally, running charging infrastructure at your own depot is the best solution for the eActros and its haulage tasks.
- Mercedes-Benz Trucks will work out and propose an optimum charging infrastructure concept, together with selected partners, ideally suited for the requirements of the freight business and optimised to suit each individual customer.
- These charging infrastructure solutions are neatly integrated into the Mercedes‑Benz Trucks ecosystem, and our partners offer comprehensive services from advice and installation to maintenance.
What does Mercedes‑Benz Trucks offer regarding charging infrastructure?
- We will recommend the suitable hardware to our customers. This includes the charging station and cables, and also an energy management system, with the help of which the stations can be controlled and managed either directly or remotely.
- Also, a selected network of partners will support customers with installation and maintenance of the charging infrastructure at the customers' locations.
How long does it take to install the charging infrastructure?
- This depends on a number of different parameters, e. g. the size of the e-fleet, the driving profile of the vehicles and connection of the depot to the electricity supply.
- Time perspective: The process can take from a few months to more than a year.
- Recommendation: Get involved in the electrification of your fleet early on.
Can I use the charging infrastructure to charge other vehicles, e.g. vans and cars?
- The eActros has a CCS2 connection and thus conforms with the general standard for charge connections in the passenger car sector. Cars and vans which are equipped for charging with direct current via a CCS2 connection can therefore be charged at the eActros charging stations.
How many eTrucks will appear on the market in the next few years?
- In accordance with the requirements of the CO₂ regulation, a strong growth of alternative drives is to be expected in the truck market.
- We can envisage a ZEV growth of around 60% in Europe by 2030.
Will the purely battery-powered eTruck survive alongside the hydrogen-powered truck?
- Battery-driven vehicles will be suitable for a number of different purposes, just as hydrogen-driven vehicles will, so they will complement each other.
- We don't believe in replacing battery-driven trucks with hydrogen-driven ones. Battery-driven vehicles provide the highest energy efficiency of all the alternative drive systems, whereas fuel-cell vehicles show high operational flexibility.
- Both technologies have key advantages for their respective areas of application, and that will continue to be the case in the future.
