Daimler Trucks is handing over ten battery-electric light-duty FUSO eCanter trucks (earlier post) to the city administration of Lisbon, Portugal. In 2015, the Portuguese cities of Lisbon, Sintra and Porto were already able to test the pre-series Canter E-Cell in real-life everyday transport operations.
As a 7.5 tonne-vehicle, the FUSO eCanter has a range of around 100 km (62 miles). The city of Lisbon uses the vehicles for municipal gardening trips and for waste disposal. With the FUSO eCanter, Lisbon is hoping to contribute to the reduction of local noise and emission pollution caused by commercial vehicles used in urban areas.
This means that since 2017, the FUSO eCanter is now in use in six cities around the world in Tokyo, New York, Berlin, London, Amsterdam as well as Lisbon.
