THE NEW E-ACTROS 600 ELECTRIC TRUCK FOR LONG RANGE TRANSPORT IS COMING SOON
Among the upcoming electric vehicles is the new version of Mercedes-Benz´s Actros, which according to analysts should represent the starting point for a progressive introduction of the electric vehicle, especially in long-distance transport in Europe.
Compared to the previous version, the eActros 600, so-called because it is close to 600kW of power, the vehicle features numerous technological innovations that place it at the forefront of electric vehicles with a mass greater than 3.5 tonnes.
First of all, it has an innovative and disruptive design, increasingly aerodynamic and functional for traction that is not traditional. Furthermore, it has a practically flat front surface without the bulky presence of radiator grills. The truck has a range of around 500 km and a charging option of up to 400 kW, thus allowing long-distance routes to be carried out with the possibility of taking advantage of a home charge in around 30 minutes.
Among other features the vehicle has a weight of 22 tonnes, but the vehicle is designed for a combined overall weight of up to 44 tonnes.
The start of sales is expected within this year, because a fleet of around 50 prototypes is currently under construction, some of which will also be tested in real use by the first buyers, but series production will begin in 2024 as a semi-trailer tractor and as a variant with box chassis.
Inside the cabin there is a touchscreen system, which allows you to activate the various functions, including driving with a single pedal or speed reduction through energy recovery with less use of the mechanical brake. Furthermore, the vehicle´s computer system informs the driver about the state of the road route and signs as well as constantly informs him about the state of energy consumption of the batteries thanks to an intelligent control system of all processes.
Finally, among the various instruments there is a mapping tool capable of showing the presence of the vehicle and its charging conditions in real time.
