Electric HGV undergoes endurance test

The electric eActros heavy vehicle went through endurance tests in the Swabian Alps

Mercedes-Benz Trucks engineers have been testing prototypes of the battery-electric eActros 600

The tests took place on the test site of the former military training ground in Münsingen and on public roads in the vicinity.

The varied topography of the region is particularly suited to testing the electric truck – both as a semitrailer tractor and as a rigid variant – under various conditions. For tests around the acoustics of the eActros 600, the engineers relied on the tried-and-tested acoustics test track in Münsingen, which offers an ideal test environment due to its quiet location.

The eActros 600 is expected to be ready for series production in 2024 and will have a range of around 500 km without intermediate charging. The world premiere of the electric long-distance truck took place in October this year.
