Irish postal operator An Post has taken delivery of two FUSO eCanters, which are now operating in Dublin.
The world’s first all-electric light truck is now running in 10 European cities across Germany, the UK, France, Portugal, the Netherlands, Denmark and Ireland. Since its launch in October 2017, FUSO has delivered 150 units with more to follow in Europe, Japan and the USA.
Daimler Trucks and FUSO Europe are working with An Post with the aim of it becoming the world’s first postal operator to attain zero carbon emission deliveries in a capital city.
The global FUSO eCanter fleet has achieved 1.6 million kilometers of emission-free operations for customers. It has a range of 100km, with the electric drive system carrying a 129kW motor and six 420V lithium-ion battery packs. A full charge can be achieved in 1.5 hours.
