Fuso eCanter passes 300 vehicle milestone

According to Daimler, the distance traveled in daily customer operations now exceeds a combined 4 million kilometers

Daimler Trucks says it is going full speed ahead to win the race to zero emissions after it revealed that global customer deliveries of its all-electric light-duty truck FUSO eCanter have now surpassed the 300 vehicle mark

The electric truck is now in service with customers in sixteen countries and cities such as New York, Tokyo, Berlin, London, Amsterdam, Paris, Dublin, Oslo, Copenhagen, Helsinki and Auckland.

With companies such as DB Schenker and IKEA counting eCanters amongst their ranks, the firm “says trust in the reliable urban delivery truck mean more deliveries are set to follow”.

According to Daimler, the distance traveled in daily customer operations now exceeds a combined 4 million kilometers driven locally emission free – equivalent to around 100 circumventions of planet earth or a little over five trips to the moon and back.

The FUSO eCanter provides a 100 kilometer range with a single charge, making the 7,49t vehicle perfectly suited for zero-emission and quiet inner-city distribution.

As of November 2021, more than 40 vehicles were so far delivered in the United States, approximately 75 trucks in Japan and another 190+ FUSO eCanter in Europe. Earlier in 2021, the all-electric light-duty truck was introduced to Australia and New Zealand, expanding the vehicles success story and adding two more major FUSO markets to the roster.

“With the launch of the eCanter in 2017, FUSO has claimed its stake as a pioneer and leader in electric trucks. In line with the sustainability strategy of Daimler Truck, FUSO leads the commercial vehicle industry into the future. Daimler Truck aims to have all new vehicles in the Triad (Europe, North America, and Japan) “tank-to-wheel” CO2-neutral by 2039. The eCanter thereby plays a significant role toward achieving carbon neutral transportation,” said the German giant in a statement.
