After the success of the launch of the Mercedes-Benz eActros as its first electric battery truck, Daimler Trucks has now officially released the second model of its electric battery truck, the Mercedes-Benz eEconic.
Dr. Ralf Forcher as Head of Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks said that from design sketches to actual builds, from prototypes to officially entering the production line, eEconic is a new line of Mercedes-Benz electric battery trucks that are ready to lead the commercial vehicle industry on city streets.
The Mercedes-Benz eEconic is largely based on the eActros, so it has the same specifications and even has a similar power source.
Where the electric truck is equipped with two liquid-cooled motors that are claimed to be able to produce up to 536 hp which flows to a two-speed transmission. Thanks to three battery packs each with a capacity of 315 kWh, this truck offers a range of up to 400 km.
Iconic highlights come from the panoramic glass and Thermocontrol tech windshield which are coated and heated which can prevent weather-dependent screen fogging, thereby enhancing the look of the road around the vehicle.
As standard, the Mercedes-Benz eEconic electric truck will be equipped with key safety features in urban traffic such as Sideguard Assist S1R and the 5th generation Active Brake Assis emergency braking assistance system (ABA 5).
