Daimler Truck North America Beginning Deliveries of First Battery-Electric Freightliner eM2 Box Trucks

Freightliner Semi Tractor Trailer Trucks Lined up for Sale

Daimler Truck North America LLC (DTNA) announced the delivery of its first battery-electric Freightliner eM2 trucks, after the start of series production of the medium-duty electric vehicles at the end of 2023. (Earlier post.) The Freightliner eM2, manufactured at DTNA’s plant in Portland, Oregon, has since been distributed to customers across the country.

PITT OHIO, a leading transportation, warehouse, and logistics services company, is the first to deploy the eM2.

The two Freightliner eM2 Class 7 trucks, which PITT OHIO is integrating into its fleet, complement its existing conventional Freightliner M2s. The battery-electric eM2 trucks with 26-foot-long box bodies will operate out of PITT OHIO’s Cleveland, Ohio terminal and support the company’s Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) freight shipping business.

DTNA is committed to offer only CO2-neutral vehicles in key markets by 2039—if the necessary infrastructure is in place and a favorable total cost of ownership can be achieved for customers. DTNA’s current electric lineup includes the Jouley, an all-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.

In 2023, the company added the eM2, with a 180-mile typical range for Class 6 and 250 miles for Class 7, suited for pick-up and delivery customers who require an adaptable electric solution. Vocational innovation vehicles were introduced last year and are in use with customers.

The eM2 sales process and delivery have been supported by Fyda Freightliner, a DTNA Elite Support certified dealership with seven locations, serving the Midwest which has supported PITT OHIO for the past 20 years.
