Fuso world’s first fully electric light-duty truck
The world’s first fully electric light-duty truck to enter series production, the FUSO eCanter represents a major advance in the battle to improve air quality in towns and cities.
The FUSO eCanter, which is scheduled to go on general sale via the Mercedes-Benz Dealer network in 2020, offers cost savings worth up to 1000 Euro for every 10000 kilometres covered, compared to a diesel-engined truck.
Powered by six 420 V and 13.8 kWh lithium-ion batteries, its electric drivetrain with permanent-magnet motor delivers 129 kW (180 hp) via a single-gear transmission in the rear axle. The truck offers a body and payload allowance of up to 4.5 tonnes, and a single charge allows effective operating ranges of more than 62 miles (100 km).
