By Mike Brezonick15 November 2021

Daimler Truck announced that global customer deliveries of its Fuso eCanter electric light-duty truck have now surpassed the 300 vehicle mark from small series production. Customers in 16 countries and cities such as New York, Tokyo, Berlin, London, Amsterdam, Paris, Dublin, Oslo, Copenhagen and Helsinki have received their vehicles and more deliveries are set to follow successively, the company said.

Fuso eCanter electric truck Daimler Truck has announced new milestones for its eCanter electric truck.

Daimler Truck also cited a further milestone reached by the global eCanter fleet, as the distance traveled in daily customer operations now exceeds a combined 4 million km (near 2.5 million miles) driven locally emission free – equivalent to around 100 orbits of the earth or a little over five trips to the moon and back, the company said.

The Fuso eCanter provides a 100 km (62 mile) range with a single charge, making the 7.49 tonne vehicle suited for inner-city distribution. As of November 2021, Daimler Truck said more than 40 vehicles have been delivered in the United States, approximately 75 trucks in Japan and more than 190 in in Europe. Earlier in 2021, the all-electric light-duty truck was introduced to Australia and New Zealand.

The eCanter was launched in 2017.
