Charged EVs | Daimler Truck North America delivers first electric Freightliner eM2 box trucks

Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) has announced that its electric Freightliner eM2, which went into series production at its Portland, Oregon, facility at the end of last year, is now being distributed to US customers.

PITT OHIO, a transportation and supply chain management company based in Pittsburgh, is the first to deploy the medium-duty EVs. The company’s two eM2s, with 26-foot-long box bodies, will operate out of its Cleveland terminal as part of its less-than-truckload freight business.

The Freightliner eM2 has typical ranges of 180 miles for Class 6 and 250 miles for Class 7. It is designed for pickup and delivery applications. DTNA’s electric lineup also includes the Jouley electric bus from Thomas Built Bus, available since 2020; the FCCC MT50e walk-in van chassis for final-mile delivery, available since 2021; and the Class 8 Freightliner eCascadia, available since 2022.
