Modified On Sep 19, 2022 02:32 PM
The eActros LongHaul comes with a higher range of around 500 kilometers on a single battery charge, and goes for series production in 2024
Daimler Truck is pursuing the goal of completing a locally CO2-neutral transporter, by 2030 commercial vehicles that are CO2-neutral in driving operation should account for up to 60 percent of the firm's truck sales in EU30 markets. Thus, unveiling a concept prototype of the electric truck eActros LongHaul that comes with a length of around 500 kilometers of range on a single battery charge and is capable of megawatt charging.
Readiness for series production is planned for 2024. Another innovation at the trade show is the battery-electric Mercedes-Benz eActros 300 in a tractor version for flexible heavy-duty distribution transport.
600 kWh BatteryCcapacity
The eActros LongHaul presented gets three battery packs that provide an installed total capacity of over 600 kWh and two electric motors, as part of a new e-axle, generate a continuous output of 400 kW and a peak output of over 600 kW. In addition to the tractor unit, Mercedes-Benz Trucks will also produce rigid variants of the eActros LongHaul right at market launch. This will offer customers numerous other possible use cases in fully electric transport. Development engineers at Mercedes-Benz Trucks are designing the eActros LongHaul so that the vehicle and its components meet the exact durability requirements as a comparable conventional heavy long-distance Actros. That means 1.2 million kilometers on the road over ten years.
The eActros LongHaul will be the first all-electric series-production vehicle from Mercedes-Benz Trucks to be manufactured from start to finish on the existing assembly line at the Wörth truck plant. This also includes installing all electrical components and putting the vehicle into operation at the end of the line.
It enables high-production capacities and completely parallel production of both conventional and fully electric trucks on the same line. With the eActros 300/400 and the eEconic, on the other hand, electrification has so far taken place in a separate process at the Future Truck Center in Wörth.
New Battery Technology
The batteries used in the eActros LongHaul employ lithium-iron phosphate cell technology (LFP). These are characterized, above all, by a long service life and more usable energy. The batteries of the production eActros LongHaul can be charged from 20 to 80 percent in well under 30 minutes at a charging station with an output of about one megawatt.
The core of the Mercedes-Benz Trucks concept for battery-electric long-distance transport is to offer customers a holistic solution consisting of vehicle technology, consulting, charging infrastructure, and services. The eActros LongHaul is planned to be the right choice for customers in terms of profitability, sustainability, and reliability. Prototypes are already undergoing intensive testing and the eActros LongHaul will be tested on public roads this year. In the coming year, near-production prototypes will go to customers for real-world use testing.
