    On May 18, Daimler Truck and its U.S. Freightliner brand announced that, after one million-miles of testing, the all-electric eCascadia will be entering series production, with customer deliveries expected to begin in 2022.

    Since 2018, Freightliner has deployed trucks with customers to run freight in the real world.

    With eCascadias built in Portland, Oregon, extensive development and rigorous testing has resulted in a powerful and efficient battery electric truck with multiple battery and drive axle options, providing a typical range of 230 miles or 370 km (depending on vehicle configurations).

    Daimler Truck is deploying a globally uniform basic architecture for its all-electric trucks with the ePowertrain.

    After the introduction of the Mercedes-Benz eActros in 2021 and the Mercedes-Benz eEconic later in 2022, the Freightliner eCascadia is the next product to feature the in-house developed ePowertrain in connection with Daimler Truck North Americas Detroit brand.

    The eCascadia is driven by an eAxle integrated with an electric motor, transmission and specialized electronics within a compact unit.

    It is available with a dual motor (470 hp) or a single motor (320 hp).

    Customers can chose between three battery options for a range of sizes and charging times starting with 194 kWh (1.5-3 hours), 291 kWh (2-4 hours), and 438 kWh (2-6 hours). (DTNA press release on May 18, 2022)
