Mercedes-Benz starting customer trials of electric trucks

Commenting on the Urban eTruck roll-out, Stefan Buchner, Head of Mercedes-Benz Trucks worldwide, sad: “Following the world premiere in September 2016 at the International Commercial Vehicle Show the customer reaction was outstanding. We are currently talking to around 20 potential customers from the disposal, foodstuffs and logistics sector. With the small series we are now rapidly taking the next step towards a series product.

“By 2020 we want to be on the market with the series generation.”

Buchner added: “Zero emissions, quiet as a whisper and with a payload of 12.8 t: The Urban eTruck offers an impressive economical and environmentally friendly concept. The vehicle will initially go in a low two-figure number of units to customers in Germany – and later in Europe too. It will be used in real transportation applications there.”
