Mercedes-Benz has unveiled its innovative Urban eTruck at the 2016 IAA International Commercial Vehicle Show in Hannover. Power for the eTruck comes courtesy of one high-speed asynchronous three-phase electric motor on each side. All up, the two motors deliver 250 kW (339 hp) and more importantly, 1000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque. As with other recent Mercedes products, the Urban eTruck focuses heavily on advanced technologies.
In the cabin, it includes a central 12.3 inch display showcasing all vital vehicle information as well as providing navigation services, including three-dimensional maps. Also found within the Mercedes-Benz Urban eTruck is the latest development of the firm's FleetBoard system. It is an advanced telematics system which helps integrate the driver, the truck and the dispatcher into a single unit, starting with flexible scheduling and precise planning of delivery routes.
