Mercedes-Benz Trucks plans to start production of its first electric series-production truck. Initially, the eActros electric truck will be offered in twelve European markets, as the company announced at the world premiere of the vehicle on Wednesday. The eActros electric truck production site is in Wörth am Rhein, Germany. However, the vehicle, whose range Mercedes-Benz claims to be up to 400 kilometres, will not be a bargain. The price is about three times that of a comparable diesel truck, said Andreas von Wallfeld, Head of Sales & Marketing at Mercedes-Benz Trucks.
