Daimler Truck’s FUSO unit has now delivered 300 all-electric light-duty truck FUSO eCanter freight trucks. It says there are now customers for the urban delivery truck in sixteen countries and cities such as New York, Tokyo, Berlin, London, Amsterdam, Paris, Dublin, Oslo, Copenhagen, Helsinki and Auckland.
A further milestone reached by the global eCanter fleet: The distance travelled in daily customer operations now exceeds a combined 4 million kilometers driven locally emission free.
The FUSO eCanter provides a 100 kilometer range with a single charge, making the 7.49t vehicle suited for zero-emission and quiet inner-city distribution. As of November 2021, more than 40 vehicles were delivered in the United States, approximately 75 trucks in Japan and another 190+ FUSO eCanter in Europe. Earlier in 2021, the all-electric light-duty truck was introduced to Australia and New Zealand.
The FUSO eCanter was launched in 2017 and Daimler Truck aims to have all new vehicles in the Triad (Europe, North America, and Japan) “tank-to-wheel” CO2-neutral by 2039. Daimler Truck says the eCanter thereby plays a significant role toward achieving carbon neutral transportation.
