Mercedes-Benz Trucks held the world premiere of the Mercedes-Benz eActros, the first electric truck produced in series by the brand. Thus the company enters a new era and, at the same time, highlights its clear desire to achieve emission-free road freight transport. The series model of the eActros is scheduled to roll off the production line in Wörth plant (Germany) during this year.
The eActros will be available in two versions with three or four batteries. Each of these powerful and special lithium-ion batteries has a capacity of approximately 105 kWh, resulting in a total sum of about 315 y 420 kWh.
These powers allow the eActros to have a autonomy of up to 400 kilometers, although the exact range may vary depending on topography, driver behavior, outside temperature, cargo and bodywork, among other factors.
The characteristics of the eActros make it a heavy truck for distribution and services in urban areas. Full battery charging is expected to take place overnight. Furthermore, partial opportunity charges can be carried out when the vehicle is temporarily parked and also, for example, when the merchandise is unloaded at destination. The eActros has the battery charge in an area close to the cabin. Charging the batteries takes between 30 and 90 minutes.
“For Mercedes Benz Trucks, sustainability is a commitment and involves a very important attitude. In order to make its contribution to this global goal, clear goals have been set to achieve an emission-free transportation industry. EMobility is the key to achieving sustainability and, thanks to the new eActros, that goal will be able to be achieved "the company stated.
