Daimler Truck Australia is tight-lipped about the arrival of the next-generation Fuso eCanter battery-electric truck Down Under

Fuso’s electric variant of its popular Canter truck, the eCanter, was a head turner at the 2021 Brisbane Truck Show.

As the first production electric truck available in Australia, Daimler Truck‘s eCanter highlighted the fact that electric trucks were no longer just engineering concepts.

This was evident with retail giants Coles and Bunnings adding eCanter’s to their fleets as well as Australia Post placing an order for some 20 eCanters.

Despite global announcements regarding the next-gen Fuso eCanter, Daimler Truck Australia is being tight-lipped about its arrival Down Under.

“There is a lot of excitement around the next-generation eCanter and we look forward to updating our customers about this when it is set to arrive locally.

“Our priority is to undertake a rigorous test and validation program in local conditions as a first step,” a company spokesman says.

With the Mercedes-Benz eActros and eEconic arriving here for testing, Daimler Truck Australia will have all bases covered in the electric truck market.

Location: Stand 44, Hall 4
