The Canter E-Cell is an exceptionally high-tech electric truck that is designed to make it easier than ever to haul large payloads on an electric drivetrain and with a very healthy range.

This particular truck comes equipped with a 110 kW AC motor that is capable of providing as much as 150 horsepower and 479 pounds-feet of torque. It weighs in at 13,230 pounds and is capable of hauling a payload of 6,470 pounds. This allows truck owners to save significantly on their operations, with Daimler estimating savings of up to $1,135 for every 10,000 km traveled.

However, the most noteworthy feature of this particular truck is its very healthy range of over 60 miles with a payload of 4,400 pounds, a key feature when you consider the distances that trucks tend to travel when hauling gear.
