Fuso unveils new eCanter with doubled range

Fuso, the subsidiary of Daimler Truck, has unveiled its next-generation eCanter with doubled range capacity, designed for urban and last-mile distribution.

The new electric truck, with a chassis load capacity up to 5.0 tonnes, is available as a standard cab with a 1.7m width or comfort at 2.0m wide.

Powertrains include a 150hp electric motor for variants with gross weights of 4.25 and 6.0 tonnes, or a 180hp version for models with gross weights of 7.49 and 8.55 tonnes.

The truck, launched at IAA Transportation in Hannover, has a maximum torque of 430Nm and a top speed of around 88 km/h.

A total of three different battery packs bring capacities of 41 to 124kWh and enable ranges of between 70 and 200 kilometres.

Previously, the eCanter only had a battery option with a nominal capacity of 81kWh and a range of up to 100 km.

Charging is possible at up to 104kW DC, giving a 90 per cent capacity charge in 36, 44 or 75 minutes, depending on the battery pack.

AC charging (11kW and 22kW) takes between four and six hours, again depending on the battery.
