Engineers from Mercedes-Benz Trucks are currently testing prototypes of the battery-electric eActros 600 on the test site of the former military training area in Münsingen and on public roads in the surrounding area. The varied topography on the Swabian Alb is particularly well suited to testing the e-truck – both as a semitrailer tractor and as a flatbed chassis variant – under various conditions. For the tests around the noise of the eActros 600, the engineers are relying on the proven acoustic test track in Münsingen, which offers an ideal test environment due to its quiet location. The eActros 600 is expected to be ready for series production in 2024 and have a range of around 500 km without intermediate charging. The world premiere of the long-distance electric truck will take place on October 10 this year.
