(PRESS RELEASE) STUTTGART/ TOKYO, 15-Nov-2021 — /EuropaWire/ — Daimler Truck, one of the world’s largest commercial vehicle manufacturer and part of Daimler AG, has announced the FUSO eCanter, the all-electric light-duty truck, has reached a number of eMobility milestones ahead of the race towards zero emissions. Customer deliveries around the world have already surpassed the 300 vehicle mark from small series production. The reliable urban delivery truck can now be seen in sixteen countries and cities such as New York, Tokyo, Berlin, London, Amsterdam, Paris, Dublin, Oslo, Copenhagen, Helsinki and even Auckland.
A further milestone reached by the global eCanter fleet: The distance traveled in daily customer operations now exceeds a combined 4 million kilometers driven locally emission free – equivalent to around 100 circumventions of planet earth or a little over five trips to the moon and back.
The FUSO eCanter provides a 100 kilometer range with a single charge, making the 7,49t vehicle perfectly suited for zero-emission and quiet inner-city distribution. As of November 2021, more than 40 vehicles were so far delivered in the United States, approximately 75 trucks in Japan and another 190+ FUSO eCanter in Europe. Earlier in 2021, the all-electric light-duty truck was introduced to Australia and New Zealand, expanding the vehicles success story and adding two more major FUSO markets to the roster.
With the launch of the eCanter in 2017, FUSO has claimed its stake as a pioneer and leader in electric trucks. In line with the sustainability strategy of Daimler Truck, FUSO leads the commercial vehicle industry into the future. Daimler Truck aims to have all new vehicles in the Triad (Europe, North America, and Japan) “tank-to-wheel” CO2-neutral by 2039. The eCanter thereby plays a significant role toward achieving carbon neutral transportation.
