Mercedes-Benz all-electric line-up

Hanover, German, Daimler Truck used the IAA Transport show in Hanover to display its electric truck range.

Martin Daum, chief executive, Daimler Truck, said: “Since the last IAA four years ago we have moved forward at full speed with the transition to CO2-neutral transport.

“This year we already have eight pure battery-electric series-production vehicles in our portfolio. However, it’s not enough just to offer the right vehicles. Our customers also need the suitable infrastructure. We are active here at a wide variety of levels. For a rapid build-up, it is essential that the entire industry and governments pull together.”

Karin Rådström, chief executive, Mercedes-Benz Trucks: “We are continuously expanding our portfolio of battery-electric trucks. Our focus is on offering clear advantages to our customers. Therefore, our electric trucks are specifically designed for e-mobility, giving them better drivability, energy efficiency and durability.”
