Mercedes-Benz is starting the first eActros Long Haul trucks for testing this year. For the important long-haul segment the eActros LongHaul, with a range of around 500 kilometers on one battery charge, is scheduled to be ready for series production in 2024. The first prototypes of the 40-ton truck are already undergoing internal tests and Mercedes-Benz Trucks’ engineers are planning to start trials of the e-truck on public roads this year. The eActros LongHaul will enable high-performance charging – so-called “megawatt charging”. Mercedes-Benz Trucks is also preparing additional variants of the eActros – specifically of the eActros 300 and the eActros 400 – and, as early as July, the eEconic for municipal use is scheduled to roll off the production line at the Wörth plant as the second all-electric series production vehicle. The goal of Mercedes-Benz Trucks is to increase the share of locally CO2-neutral new vehicles in Europe to more than 50 percent by 2030.
