Daimler Trucks Go Green

The trucks division of German carmaker Daimler has delivered its first fully electric lorries to companies in Europe, as the global race to mass produce the first generation of “green trucks” heats up.

Among the first customers for Daimler’s Fuso eCanter light-weight truck was express delivery service DHL, which said on Thursday it would use its six vehicles to navigate Berlin’s inner-city traffic.

The keys to eight other eCanter trucks were handed over to German logistics and transport firms DB Schenker, Rhenus and Dachser.
