Daimler Truck will introduce the new generation of the well-known FUSO eCanter at IAA Transportation in Hannover. The manufacturer confirmed the news in the last few days. From inner-city distribution to landscaping, municipal applications, towing services and even some construction duties, the best-selling light truck will reveal its latest evolution for the first time in Europe.
The new eCanter will be introduced at IAA 2022
As stated by Daimler Truck, the Next Generation eCanter is the development result of around five years of successful worldwide customer operations as part of a small series production. The vehicle offers customers a wide selection of different variants, therefore enabling even more variability for different applications than before. The new eCanter is compatible with various bodies, covering almost all industry-relevant requirements of customers in the light-duty truck segment between 4.25 and 8.55 tons and will thus make an even greater contribution to locally emission-free inner-city transport in the future.
The eCanter is Daimler Truck’s first fully electric light-duty truck produced in small series. Particularly in urban use, the locally emission-free vehicle shows its strengths in reducing noise and vibrations compared to conventionally powered trucks. Several hundred eCanter are now in customer operations, including some of Europe’s largest logistics companies. In Europe alone, the eCanter is now sold in 13 markets. In Europe, Japan, the United States, Australia and New Zealand, the trucks have covered a total of about 5 million kilometers
