Mercedes-Benz Trucks is intensively testing its brand-new trucks. After the GenH2 hydrogen prototype, the new Mercedes eActros 600, to be officially launched next week in Hamburg, was indeed tested. The truck proved itself capable of running 530 km without intermediate charging, along a route between Stuttgart and Bozen, South Tyrol, Italy. After an intermediate charge, the e-truck managed to run more than 1,000 km.

Mercedes eActros 600, stronger than the topography

So, despite the demanding topography, the e-truck managed the 530 km trip completely without intermediate charging and arrived in Bolzano after a roughly seven hour journey. Series production of the brand-new eletric truck in the Mercedes portfolio is due to start in 2024.
