Daimler Trucks North America, Portland General Electric Announce Public Heavy-Duty Electric Truck Charging Site

“Electric Island” planned to feature charging for commercial electric vehicles on Portland’s Swan Island. Electric Island will help accelerate the development, testing and deployment of zero emissions (tank-to-wheel) commercial vehicles and will provide DTNA, PGE and the public the opportunity to charge light-, medium-, and heavy-duty vehicles. Plans for more chargers, on-site energy storage, solar power generation, and a product and technology showcase building are currently being finalized.

REAL TRUCKS. REAL CUSTOMERS. REAL MILES.

More than 700 expert engineers are the brain trust behind our eMobility team, whose dedication to developing purpose-built battery-electric trucks will transform the global trucking industry. Their co-creators on this innovative journey? Our actual customers, who keep the world moving with their trucking fleets. Comprised of the dedicated trucking professionals who rely on our trucks for their businesses, our Freightliner Customer Experience (CX) Fleet and Freightliner Electric Innovation Fleet customers are right there with us, every day, at multiple testing sites across North America. Together with our customers, who are using our pre-production models to provide us with invaluable feedback, we have already reached 500,000 real-world miles in operation with our preproduction eCascadia® and eM2® electric truck models.

AN ELECTRIC ROADMAP TO ELECTRIC SCHOOL BUSES

Daimler Trucks North America and the team at Thomas Built Buses are working diligently to make battery-electric school buses a viable option for school districts from Alaska to Florida, but the route isn’t always a straight line. Adding electric buses to a fleet requires navigating a complex ecosystem that includes infrastructure, financing, operations and, of course, the bus itself. That’s why we employ a team of EV specialists with the experience, expertise and partnerships to help navigate the road to electric bus implementation. That kind of customer support complements our all-electric Thomas Built Buses Saf-T-Liner C2, affectionately named Jouley™, which is already at work transporting students.

DELIVERING THE FUTURE BY BUILDING ELECTRIC COMMERCIAL VEHICLES

At Daimler Trucks North America, our commitment to the efficient, tailpipe emissions-free commercial vehicle technology of tomorrow is steadfast, unwavering and happening today. Like our traditional approach to creating the most efficient and safest trucks on the road, our eMobility strategy includes our established technological expertise, coupled with unparalleled customer experience and a dedicated team of the best engineers in the industry. With the help of our partners, we are rapidly approaching our goal to deliver series-produced eCascadia and eM2 models in 2022, and we are already delivering Jouley today. With our unmatched service infrastructure, world-class safety systems and advanced telematics—we are set to lead a quieter, cleaner, connected electric future.
