Mercedes-Benz Trucks is starting its eActros sales tour through five European countries. The route of the three e-trucks for distribution transport first leads from the Mercedes-Benz plant in Wörth via Austria to Italy. After a subsequent loop through Germany, the eActros will continue on to the Netherlands and Belgium. Several stops will be made along the route to present the vehicles, including services, to customers in detail. The e-experts from Mercedes-Benz Trucks who are on the road with the eActros will address market-specific questions about e-mobility in direct exchanges with fleet operators and provide customers with comprehensive advice. Over a period of five weeks, the three eActros will cover a total of around 3,700 kilometers in pure battery electric mode. They will be charged both at public charging stations and at charging points in the depots of the branches.
Two eActros 300 (4×2) and one eActros 400 (6×2) will be used for the roadshow. The battery-electric Mercedes-Benz eActros for heavy-duty distribution transport has been rolling off the production line at the Wörth plant since 2021. The batteries of the eActros consist of either three (eActros 300) or four battery packs (eActros 400), each offering an installed capacity of 112 kWh. With four battery packs, the eActros 400 has a range of up to 400 kilometers. The technological heart of the electric truck is the drive unit, an electric rigid axle with two integrated electric motors and two-speed transmission. The two liquid-cooled motors generate a continuous output of 330 kW and a peak output of 400 kW. In addition, electrical energy can be recovered through recuperation when driving with foresight. The energy recovered during braking is fed back into the batteries of the eActros and is then available again for propulsion.
Stina Fagerman, Head of Marketing, Sales and Services at Mercedes-Benz Trucks: “More and more fleet operators are preparing to electrify their fleets. With the eActros Roadshow, we are actively approaching customers and making it possible to experience the eActros at first hand on site. At the same time, we provide comprehensive advice on all aspects of the switch to e-mobility. We are very much looking forward to this CO2-neutral tour across Europe.” www.media.daimlertruck.com
