Inapa Deutschland will proceed with the testing phase of the Mercedes-Benz eActros electric truck in Ettlingen, Germany, for the distribution of paper in the Karlsruhe area. The vehicle has a range of approximately 200 kilometers.
Frank Weithase, COO at Inapa Deutschland: “Environmental protection and sustainability are among our most important tasks in our business with paper and paper products. As a leading paper wholesaler, we bear a high level of responsibility going far beyond our immediate economic activities in the field of paper solutions. Of course, this also includes our transport logistics, which is entrusted with distributing our products. It is right here that the locally emission-free eActros contributes to our environmental strategy. We are looking forward to the upcoming practical use of the truck.”
In fact, this is the second phase of testing, as the truck has been tested since the beginning of the year and has proven to perform well on both highways and overland routes. The eActros’s range of about 200 kilometers is independent of the load transported, route or topography, and the battery can be fully charged in two hours. The quiet driving style and a pleasant driving experience are two features pointed out for this innovative fleet.
The series production of this vehicle is planned for 2021.
