Daimler delivers its first electric Freightliner eCascadia

Daimler Trucks is further expanding its field tests for medium and heavy-duty e-trucks in North America: This week, American customers Penske Truck Leasing and NFI Industries have acquired the first heavy-duty Freightliner eCascadia trucks (class 8) with a range of up to 250 miles (400 km). Since the end of 2018, both carriers have been field-testing the medium-duty, fully electric Freightliner eM2. Penske will be operating the Freightliner eCascadia in regional traffic in Southern California, while NFI will employ the eCascadia in drayage operations at both the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. The two eCascadia are the first heavy-duty trucks in Freightliner’s innovation fleet with a total of 30 electric vehicles. The market launch for both the Freightliner eCascadia and the eM2 truck is currently planned for 2021.
