The Mercedes-Benz Electric Truck illustrates the fascinating possibilities of connectivity, electric drive systems, future display and control technologies, telematics, and a largely self-sufficient power supply. The Mercedes-Benz Electric Truck defines the latest developments in all-electric vehicles in the heavy short-radius distribution sector.
Performance of a diesel engine
The Mercedes-Benz Electric Truck holds its own against similar internal combustion engine-powered trucks in every respect, even its weight. The triple-axle vehicle with a permissible gross weight of 26.0 t produces zero local emissions and runs silently, yet it is equal to a truck with an internal combustion engine in terms of load and performance, and, thanks to its innovative power supply, it is also economical. The outstanding features of the Mercedes-Benz Electric Truck include its drive with electrically powered rear axle and electric motors directly adjacent to the wheel hubs. Their maximum output is 2 x 125 kW, while torque is 2 x 500 Nm. The standard version of the axle has already proven itself in buses.
Intelligent energy management
The battery capacity of the Mercedes-Benz Electric Truck has a modular design. The basic arrangement is a battery pack consisting of lithium-ion batteries with a total capacity of 212 kWh. This results in a range of up to 200 km – normally enough for a typical day’s delivery round. The additions of Predictive Charge Management, proactive Predictive Powertrain Control cruise control and FleetBoard for Urban Distribution make the Mercedes-Benz Electric Truck suitable for everyday use.
