Daimler has unveiled its Fuso branded eCanter electric truck in Manhattan.
Mitsubishi Fuso is part of the Daimler Truck Group, along with Freightliner
and Mercedes Benz. The eCanter electric light duty delivery truck has been
under development for several years and will be manufactured in Tramagal,
Portugal. It goes on sale in the US, Europe, and Japan starting later this
year, according to a company press release.

The Fuso eCanter has a range of 100 kilometers and a load capacity up to
three and a half tons depending on body type and usage. Its electric
powertrain consists of six 420 volt lithium ion battery rated at 13.8 kWh
each. In comparison with a conventional diesel truck, its projected
operating costs are at least $1,000 less for every 6,000 miles traveled.
Seven Eleven Corporation has already agreed to add 25 of the new electric
delivery vans to its fleet in Japan and UPS says it will add them to its US
fleet of sustainable vehicles.

Marc Llistosella, head of Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation and
Daimler Trucks Asia says, “In times when everybody is talking about electric
trucks, we are the first to actually commercialize a series produced all
electric truck. Having a long history in alternative drivetrains, we are
proud to step into this new era. Our FUSO eCanter comes with years of
customer testing, and the assurance of parts, services, and warranty through
our global FUSO dealership network.”

“Our new FUSO eCanter now addresses the increasing global demand for
products to meet and exceed high CO2 emission standards. It offers an
attractive and cost-effective alternative to combustion engines and makes
electric trucks key to the future of inner city distribution”, Llistosella

StoreDot Partnership

The introduction of the eCanter is only part of the good news coming from
Daimler regarding electric trucks this week. It has also partnered Israeli
startup StoreDot, which claims it has created a battery like the ones needed
for electric trucks that can be recharged in as little as 5 minutes.
StoreDot has recently completed a funding round which raised $60 million,
thanks in large part by leadership from Daimler according to Venture Beat.

StoreDot’s FlashBattery technology is uniquely suited for commercial
vehicles that start and stop repeatedly during daily use because the system
maximizes the benefits of regenerative braking. That means a vehicle can
travel further before it needs recharging.

Dr. Doron Myersdorf, CEO of StoreDot, says, “Having Daimler, a world leader
in the automotive field, as a strategic partner is of significant value to
StoreDot. It will accelerate the completion of our development process and
the introduction of FlashBattery to the market. Together with Daimler teams,
we create synergies that optimize the characteristics of our innovative
solutions with the requirements of the electric vehicles of the future.”

If StoreDot can make 5 minute charging the norm, the electric car and truck
revolution will be complete.
