The battery-electric eActros LongHaul long-distance truck will be Mercedes-Benz Trucks’ trade show highlight at this year’s IAA Transportation show in September in Hanover, Germany.

Daimler announced the 40-ton truck in 2020 and will present the "concept prototype" exactly two years later for the first time.

The eActros LongHaul provides a preview of the design theme of the series-production vehicle.

The first prototypes are already undergoing intensive testing and the eActros LongHaul will be tested on public roads this year. In the coming year, near-production prototypes will get to customers for real-world use testing with series readiness planned for 2024.


On a single battery charge the eActros LongHaul will have a range of around 500 kilometers and will utilise high-performance charging – or so-called "megawatt charging" where the  batteries can be charged from 20 to 80 per cent in well under 30 minutes at a charging station with an output of about one megawatt.

"The electrification of heavy long-distance transport is the next milestone on our road to CO2-neutrality. The eActros LongHaul is a battery-electric vehicle which is planned to be economically feasible for our customers. My team and I look forward to presenting this innovative truck to our customers and the public in September," says Karin Rådström, CEO Mercedes-Benz Trucks.
