Tönnies Group’s logistics subsidiary Tevex Logistics intends to use the eActros LongHaul battery-powered long-distance truck for the delivery of foodstuffs in the future and has signed a joint Letter of Intent for the order of 50 Mercedes-Benz electric semitrailer tractors eActros LongHaul with a range of around 500 km, which is scheduled to go into series production in 2024.By using the first e-truck from Mercedes-Benz Trucks, as well as further acquisitions and conversions, the logistics subsidiary has already managed to achieve around a third of its targets. The focus is on sustainable food production along the entire chain. The purpose of this Letter of Intent is to further strengthen the path Tönnies has chosen.Development engineers at Mercedes-Benz Trucks are designing the eActros LongHaul so that the vehicle and its components meet the same durability requirements as a comparable conventional heavy long-distance Actros. That means 1.2 million kilometers on the road over a period of ten years. The batteries used in the eActros LongHaul employ lithium-iron phosphate cell technology (LFP). Three battery packs provide an installed total capacity of over 600 kWh and two electric motors, as part of a new e-axle, generate a continuous output of 400 kW and a peak output of over 600 kW.In addition to the tractor unit, Mercedes-Benz Trucks will also produce rigid variants of the eActros LongHaul right at market launch. This will offer customers numerous other possible use cases in fully electric transport.
