Daimler Truck at the IAA Transportation

Ultimate goal: CO2-neutral transport on the road by 2050

Our ambition is to only offer new vehicles in Europe, Japan and North America by 2039 that are CO2-neutral when driving ("tank-to-wheel"). FUSO launched the small series production of the first-generation eCanter in 2017; the battery-electric models Mercedes-Benz eCitaro, eActros and eEconic have been in series production since 2018, 2021 and 2022 respectively. The Freightliner eCascadia for the North American market will follow this year and further locally CO2-neutral vehicles are set to be launched in the coming years. In the second half of this decade, we will also add series-produced trucks with hydrogen-based fuel-cell drives to its range of vehicles. The first prototypes of the Mercedes-Benz GenH2 Truck are already undergoing intensive testing – both on the in-house test track and on public roads. The development goal is a range of up to 1,000 kilometers and more. This makes the truck suitable for particularly flexible and demanding operations, especially in the important segment of heavy long-distance transport. The ultimate goal is to achieve locally CO2-neutral transport on the road by 2050.

We also want to offer CO2-neutral bus models in every segment by 2030. In addition to the battery-electric Mercedes-Benz eCitaro, which has been in series production since 2018, Daimler Buses is planning to launch the first fully electric inter-city bus on the market from 2025. The first all-electric touring coach is due to follow at the end of this decade.
