Mercedes-Benz will unveil electric trucks

The production of electric vehicles is gaining more and more popularity. And it is connected, first of all, with the increasing demand for the electric cars. And although Tesla is considered as the initiator of that powerful movement, its development direction has already been taken up by many of the world's car manufacturers. They are transferring their cars to the electric control. One of these companies is the legendary Mercedes-Benz plant.

The experts say that that manufacturer was among the last to join the movement set by Elon Musk. Recently, the Mercedes-Benz representatives announced that they are ready to present three trucks with zero emissions. The company plans to start production of such trucks in 2021.

The electric trucks were named Daimler and are considered to be environmentally friendly and safe. The developers equipped new models of modern trucks with hydrogen fuel cells. They are also equipped with a battery electric transmission for both urban and long-distance transport.

The potential range is around 100 kilometers, which makes the truck very efficient in reducing waste into the air. The first truck model is a battery-electric vehicle. It was announced back in 2018. The expected mileage of the electric car is almost 200 kilometers. Such a machine can be ideal for short, heavy urban transport.

The car will be equipped with route analysis functions, vehicle fleet integration, which will solve the problem with charging. The second model is eActros LongHaul. It will be released in 2024 and will be fully electric with additional batteries.

That car will be able to cover distances of up to 500 kilometers on a single charge. This type of truck will be designed for long-distance travel. The third model Mercedes-Benz GenH2 will have a hydrogen fuel cell, and it will cover up to a thousand kilometers.
