Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) announced its plan to convert their Portland plant in Oregon for the production of electric trucks under Freightliner banner next year. Serial production of the eM2 and eCascadia models is set to start in 2021.

The decision fell in favour of Portland because of its proximity to EV-strong California, Daimler Trucks said. In addition to production, the Portland site will also host a battery storage facility and an electric vehicle co-creation centre, where the team will work with customers. The idea is to help transform fleets “from order intake through the second life of the truck,” states DTNA.

Daimler presented the eM2 and eCascadia for the first time in mid-2018. As far as the technical details of the two electric trucks are concerned, the following is known: The Freightliner eCascadia is an electric offshoot of the Cascadia long-haul truck with a range of up to 400 km and an output of around 537 kW. The 550 kWh battery used in the truck should be rechargeable to about 80 per cent within 1.5 hours. The vehicle permits a total weight of over 15 tons.
