After well over a million test miles (over 1.6 million kilometers) in daily customer operation, Daimler Truck and its US brand Freightliner are presenting the production version of the all-electric eCascadia. The start of production is planned for 2022. The e-truck is based on the Cascadia, the best-selling truck for heavy long-distance transport (class 8, > 15t gross vehicle weight) in the North American market. With the series vehicle, Freightliner is now offering its customers a locally emission-free version. The first deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2022 and will take Daimler Truck and its US customers an important step towards CO2-neutral transport. The eCascadia is powered by an e-axle, which is integrated in a compact unit with an electric motor, transmission and special electronics.
The eCascadia is available with a single engine (320 hp) or a double engine (470 hp). Three battery options with different sizes and average charging times, starting at 194 kWh (one and a half to three hours), 291 kWh (two to four hours) and 438 kWh (two to six hours). www.daimlertruck.com
