Mercedes-Benz eActros 2018 Powered 100% Electric Clean – Mercedes-Benz eActros 2018 with this 6×2 configuration is a Mercedes-Benz Urban eTruck concept, Mercedes-Benz Trucks announces the development of a heavy-duty electric truck concept. And in 2018 the model produced by Mercedes-Benz eActros, is now ready for its first road service. After first showing Mercedes-Benz eActros at the IAA Commercial Vehicles exhibition in Hanover in 2016.
Mercedes-Benz eActros 2018 is based on the frame of the existing Actros model, although the architecture has been reconfigured to include an electric drive system. The drive axle is based on ZF AVE 130 using a low floor portal shaft in Mercedes-Benz hybrids and bus fuel cells, although the company says it is being “fundamentally revised” for the eActros application.
The EActros 2018 Mercedes-Benz axle has been redesigned and installed in a higher position, to increase the distance to more than 200 mm. The drive system consists of two electric motors located near the rear rear wheel hub. This three-phase asynchronous motor is cooled by liquid and operates at 400V, offering an output of 125 kW and 485 Nm. The gearing ratio changes this to 11 000 Nm, so driving performance is equivalent to diesel trucks. The maximum allowable axle load is 11.5 tons.
Mercedes-Benz eActros 2018 is also full of battery power. Spread over two banks and eleven packages for a total of 240 kWh, this truck has a range of up to 200 km (probably depending on load and conditions). This package is spread throughout the chassis with three in the frame area, and the other eight under the cargo space. For security reasons, the battery is protected by steel houses, which give way and damage in the event of a collision, transferring energy through the battery without damaging it.
Technical data is owned by Mercedes-Benz eActros 2018 with 2 x electric hub motors, 240 kW, 2x 485 Nm, 6×2 configuration, M-cab. This Mercedes-Benz eActros 6×2 2018 has been used in the EvoBus Group, shortening development time and reducing costs. They also supply electricity to other truck components such as air compressors for braking systems, power steering pumps, air conditioning systems, and potentially cooled bodies, if equipped.
For charging, it takes 3-11 hours, based on the charging capacity of 20 to 80 kW from the cellphone charging device in the fleet depot, and using the Joint Filling System (CCS). Mercedes-Benz eActros 6×2 2018 is a very brilliant innovation with 100% environmentally-friendly electricity for an amazing urban distribution.
