Daimler Trucks is handing over the first units of its all-electric FUSO eCanter to European customers. The renowned and globally operating logistics companies DHL, DB Schenker, Rhenus and Dachser will now use the all-electric light-duty truck in series production in their fleet. In the future these FUSO eCanter will play an important part in the companies’ sustainable fleet management, especially in urban delivery transport and various other logistics tasks. With the presentation of the product brand E-FUSO in October this year, FUSO has already strengthened its commitment to alternative drivetrains. Over the next few years, all truck and bus models will offer one additional electric variant.
Marc Llistosella, Head of Daimler Trucks Asia, explains: “With the FUSO eCanter we are delivering the first all-electric truck in series production to our customers in Europe today. Over 90,000 kilometers of testing in everyday operating conditions secure that we handover a reliable and economical vehicle to our customers. With the FUSO eCanter our customers now operate not only quietly and without locally emitted CO2, they also save money on operating costs. This is the future of urban distribution transport.“
