Mercedes-Benz and Daimler Trucks unveiled a prototype called the Urban eTruck
The heavy-duty all-electric truck meant to be used in and around big cities and will have a range of around 124 miles per charge
The truck will have a weight capacity of 26 tonnes (or 29 US tons) and has a load capacity comparable to current diesel-powered semis — around 26 tons
The eTruck is based off of an existing three-axle Mercedes-Benz truck that typically handles short-range deliveries. But the company replaced that truck’s drivetrain with an electrically-driven rear axle that is based on the one used by the Mercedes-Benz Citaro hybrid bus.
Three lithium-ion battery modules that make up the whole battery pack will power the truck, and it’s located underneath where the cargo would go.
