In Berlin and Stuttgart, the two FUSO eCanters will be incorporated into the core groupage business operated by DACHSER’s long-established transportation companies. Their job will be to deliver pallets of manufactured goods, either to microhubs or directly to customers. They will also collect goods and bring them to DACHSER’s branches in Schönefeld and Kornwestheim. “These electric trucks are ideal for city centres and that’s where they will most often be found,” says Hohm.
Depending on its design and purpose, the all-electric light truck offers a range of some 100 kilometres and a load capacity of up to 3.5 metric tons. Its electric powertrain comprises six high-voltage lithium-ion batteries, each one with 420 V and 13.8 kWh.
