Freightliner Announces Electrified Versions Of Its Popular Heavy-Duty & Medium Duty Trucks



Freightliner Trucks took to the stage recently to take the wraps off of two new fully-electric truck offerings. The Freightliner eCascadia is a heavy-duty truck (>15 t GVW), while the Freightliner eM2 106 is a medium-duty truck (9 to 12 t GVW), and the company says they mark the beginning of a new era in trucking.

Freightliner will have the first 30 vehicles to customers later this year for testing in real-world conditions as part of its Electric Innovation Fleet. Building on the learnings from the real-world testing, Freightliner is currently planning to commence series production of the new trucks in 2021.

So much for announcing your intentions too far into the future. Always somebody with infrastructure in place to jump on the bandwagon before you can get your foot in the door when the cat's out of the bag.
