Fuso eCanter receives its global launch in New York

Fuso will deliver 500 trucks within the next two years, then make more than 10,000 in 2019, he said.

Reuters previously reported that Tesla may create an electric semi truck that can up to 200 to 300 miles off a single charge, which completely blow pasts Daimler's eCanter's range of only a meager 62 miles. It has also partnered Israeli startup StoreDot, which claims it has created a battery like the ones needed for electric trucks that can be recharged in as little as 5 minutes. The vehicle's electric powertrain contains six high voltage lithium ion battery packs with 420 V and 13.8 kWh each.

The eCanter is made by Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation.

After years of research and intensive customer testing, the FUSO eCanter will be fully integrated in the production line for the conventional combustion Fuso Canter truck.

According to Llistosella, Mitsubishi Fuso will charge a premium (undisclosed) price for the all-electric eCanter and calculates that fleets will be able to realize $1,000 in savings for every 6,500 miles the truck runs in the configuration displayed at the press event. "However", he said, "those return on investment figures are based on normal usage in cities today".

Electric trucks are slowly gaining ground around the world, and one of the world's largest truck manufacturers is getting in on the action.

This week Daimler, which owns the Mercedes-Benz and Smart auto brands as well as the Freightliner and Western Star truck brands, revealed the production-ready Fuso eCanter electric truck. "We expect to have 50 trucks that will be operating here in the U.S.by the end of the year".

Marc Llistosella, president and CEO of MFTBC, said: "When everybody is talking about electric trucks, we are the first to actually commercialise a series produced all-electric truck". The company earlier this year announced its first commercial customer in Japan and opened a production facility in Portugal. UPS said it will place in service trucks to build on UPS's Rolling Laboratory fleet of more than 8,500 alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles.

Daimler, which is working on autonomous-driving technology for its trucks, will introduce its own long-haul semi concept at the Tokyo Motor Show in October, Llistosella said.

Pelosi also said they had discussed with Trump a bill that would allow DACA recipients to eventually become citizens. Since then, Trump has been hinting, albeit vaguely, that he'd be open to a deal helping the DREAMers out.

It'll first arrive in the USA wearing UPS livery. Both Daimler and UPS believe the trucks will play a major part in curbing emissions and noise pollution in the major city.
