UPS first customer to order new all-electric trucks

Ian Kerr

UPS will use new zero-emission electric trucks from Daimler Trucks' Fuso brand, called the eCanter. The delivery company will be the first commercial customer in the U.S. to use this vehicle.

The FUSO eCanter is the world’s first series-produced all-electric light-duty truck.

“Electric trucks make our fleet both cleaner and quieter."
- Carlton Rose, president, global fleet maintenance & engineering, UPS

UPS already has more than 8,500 alternative drivetrain vehicles in service, including over 770 electric or hybrid electric vehicles in cities around the world. UPS recently set a goal that by 2020 one in four vehicles purchased annually will use alternative fuels or advanced technology. 

The FUSO eCanter has a range of 100km and a load capacity up to 3.5 tons – depending on body and usage. According to Daimler, the eCanter offers savings up to 1,000 Euro per 10,000km on operating costs compared to conventional diesel trucks.

“Our new FUSO eCanter now addresses the increasing global demand for products to meet and exceed high CO2 emission standards. It offers an attractive and cost-effective alternative to combustion engines and makes electric trucks key to the future of inner city distribution.”
- Marc Llistosella, President and CEO of Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation and Head of Daimler Trucks Asia

FUSO also will supply a fleet of local zero‑e mission FUSO eCanter trucks to New York based not-for-profits, including: Wildlife Conservation Society, New York Botanical Garden, Habitat for Humanity New York City, and Big Reuse Brooklyn.
