Tough Tesla Semi! Mercedes-Benz pure electric long-distance heavy truck is here: a single battery life of 500 kilometers

Recently, the Hannover Commercial Vehicle and Parts Exhibition (IAA 2022), which has been suspended for 4 years, opened again. This is the largest exhibition in the commercial vehicle industry. Mercedes-Benz pure electric long-distance heavy truck eActros LongHaul is also in this exhibition. Debut. According to the official WeChat news of Daimler Trucks China, the first batch of eActros LongHaul pure electric long-distance heavy-duty truck prototypes have completed intensive testing and will be tested on public roads this year, and will provide customers with a prototype version close to mass production for testing next year. (Picture from Mercedes-Benz official) The eActros LongHaul pure electric long-distance heavy-duty truck is not much different from the traditional Mercedes-Benz heavy-duty truck, because pure electric does not need a large-area grille, and the front face adopts a closed design. Although the overall appearance is not much different from the gasoline-fueled Mercedes-Benz heavy truck, Xiaolei believes that the chassis and battery and other technologies of this car are based on the new platform, and it is by no means a simple "oil-to-electricity". The most important part of power and endurance, the Mercedes-Benz eActros LongHaul is equipped with three battery packs with a total capacity of more than 600 kWh. The battery is lithium iron phosphate technology, which mainly has a long service life and higher stability. The car is equipped with two drive motors, the continuous output power can reach 400 kilowatts, and the peak power even exceeds 600 kilowatts. (Picture from Mercedes-Benz official) As a heavy truck that mainly runs long distances, battery life, power, stability, and durability are the most important hard indicators. The 500-kilometer battery life, Xiaolei thinks that it is a bit stretched, including high-speed driving and battery. The loss of capacity is estimated to be about 300 kilometers in actual calculation. In contrast, Tesla's Semi trucks have 700 kilometers, which is more advantageous. However, the Mercedes-Benz eActros LongHaul supports one megawatt charging, which can charge 60% of the power in 30 minutes. If there are enough charging stations, the impact of the short battery life may not be large. Officials said that this heavy truck can also increase the battery life through a specially customized electric trailer. Xiaolei believes that this is not the advantage of Mercedes-Benz pure electric heavy trucks. After all, other competitors will definitely think of similar solutions. (Picture from Mercedes-Benz official) With the continuous advancement of new energy, considering emissions and environmental protection, in addition to civilian cars, many heavy-duty vehicles have to move closer to new energy. This is also the recent competition for new energy models in the transportation field such as buses and trucks The main reason for being so intense. Mercedes-Benz is an old-fashioned manufacturer of trucks, especially foreign high-end heavy trucks, which basically have Mercedes-Benz's presence. There must be a certain "context" in making trucks. However, due to the slow transformation of these traditional brands, it is difficult to compete with the new forces. It depends on whether eActros LongHaul can win the favor of major customers.
