The Mercedes Urban eTruck Concept is part of the German carmaker`s impressive autonomous lineup that is heading for an official debut tomorrow at the 2016 IAA Commercial Vehicles Show, in Hannover, Germany, where it will face the hard competition from Volvo`s new autonomous and high-performance trucks.
Mercedes-Benz has tested so far the Vision Van electric and its autonomous drones, and the Urban eTruck Concept is the third electric vehicle to represent the company`s vision of future autonomous and green range of models.
What is most impressive about the Urban eTruck Concept is that it comes with a massive 212 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and a range of 124 miles, making it one of the most efficient short-range commercial vehicles.
Also, the eTruck is also equipped with two electric motors which deliver a combined 335 horsepower and whopping 1,000 Nm of torque.
The company states as well that the battery pack comes with a modular configuration which will allow for future modifications in terms of autonomy and increased mile range.
As for the Urban`s design, the eTruck borrows the design lines from the Vision Van electric, with a futuristic approach and impressive aerodynamics. More details will be known at a later date, prior to the truck`s debut at the IAA Commercial Vehicles Show.
Mercedes-Benz has also released an impressive photo gallery with the Urman eTruck Concept, which reveals the latest technology used in the autonomous truck segment.
