In compliance with the Group’s holistic electrification approach, Mercedes-Benz Trucks is now also offering its customers the opportunity to purchase charging stations in addition to battery-electric vehicles. The so-called “Depot Charging” package includes consultation, hardware sales, and technical service. Qualified Mercedes-Benz Trucks partners can also carry out the installation on request. The aim is to ensure smooth charging processes and high levels of vehicle availability.

Mercedes-Benz Trucks’ charging stations, made by Italy-based Alpitronic

The project will be launched in Germany at the end of May 2024 with pilot projects at various dealerships, followed by a rollout, with further European countries gradually being added. Big news is that Italy-based Alpitronic was chosen as strategic partner within such project. Indeed, Alpitronic was established in South Tyrol in 2009. Since 2017, the enterprise, whose DNA lies in the development of power electronics, has focused on the development and production of the “Hypercharger” model series. Alpitronic’s fast-charging stations are becoming the go-to choice for many public fast-charging infrastructure operators. The company has recently suffered quite a dramatic burst of fire, earlier this month, however they’re going to recover and production started a few days after the fire.

“We have been a pioneer in the industry for years with our wide-ranging consultation on vehicle fleet electrification. Our eConsulting services have been continuously refined over the years through extensive customer engagement. As a provider of consultation and depot charging stations, we are meeting an important customer demand. In doing so, aim to make the transition to electric mobility even easier for our customers”, commented Stina Fagerman, Head of Marketing, Sales and Services at Mercedes-Benz Trucks.
