A Crucial Step to Support Battery Electric and Fuel Cell Trucking
Daimler Trucks North America plans to begin production of this Class 8 heavy-duty battery electric truck, the eCascadia, later this year. The big rig is rated at 500 horsepower and capable of carrying a full load 250 miles. The battery can be 80% recharged in 90 minutes.
