FUSO’s eCanter electric truck propels sustainable production methods.
FUSO‘s Next Generation eCanter electric truck marks a significant milestone in EV truck technology, showcasing impressive performance and pushing the boundaries of sustainable production.
Its performance, flexibility, and FUSO’s dedication to achieving net-zero emissions drive the success of the eCanter. Their Tramagal plant achieved CO2 neutrality in 2022 by using renewable energy sources and reducing their water consumption. Additionally, FUSO is actively exploring the promising field of green hydrogen production.
The EV truck also incorporated components from 90 suppliers across Europe, to maximise local manufacturing and further reduce the truck’s overall carbon footprint.
With over 550 vehicles in global operation, the eCanter is proving to be a successful electric truck. It has earned praise for its flexibility, offering multiple variants and adjustable wheelbases.
The eCanter offers three battery options: S, M, and L, all with lithium iron phosphate (LFP) cells. The S variant has a 41 kWh capacity and a range of up to 70 km, while the M variant boasts an 83 kWh capacity and a range of up to 140 km. The powerful L variant features a 124 kWh capacity and an impressive range of up to 200 km. Recuperation technology further extends the range and minimizes the need for frequent charging.
The Next Generation eCanter by FUSO is an impressive step in EV truck technology, alongside highlighting the benefits of sustainable production. Projects like these are pushing responsible manufacturing to the fore, and proving that EVs can be made with minimal emissions to build a truly green economy.
