Mercedes delivered to Dutch logistics operator Simon Loos the first eActros 300 tractor, to be used in the Netherlands. The first of a total of five vehicles was handed over to the food logistics company last month. Simon Loos has already been using seven eActros as rigid variants since last year, which supply various customers, supermarkets and catering businesses with food, especially in the Randstad region.

Mercedes-Benz eActros 300 tractor

The Tractor version of the electric truck is compatible with all common European semitrailers, taking into account the maximum permitted total tractor/trailer combination length. The electric semitrailer truck is based on the same technology as the eActros 300/400 that has already been in series production since 2021.
