Mercedes-Benz & FUSO Trucks
Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK Ltd is the sales and marketing organisation responsible for all Mercedes-Benz truck products in the UK, including FUSO Canter.
In 2017, Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK Ltd registered 8,385 new trucks. Mercedes-Benz registrations grew by 9% year-on-year, totalling 7,561 trucks. The company’s total market share for 2017 was 18.6% – making Mercedes-Benz the second-biggest truck brand in the UK.
For more than 125 years, Mercedes-Benz has stood for innovative vehicles that meet exceptionally high standards of quality. Our claim to perfection, sustainability and avant-garde design is now embodied in the next generation of trucks: Actros, Antos, Arocs, Atego, Econic and Unimog.
At LoCITY 2018, Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK will be showcasing the FUSO eCanter – the world’s first all-electric light-duty truck in series production. The eCanter has a GVW of 7.49 tonnes and a payload of up to 4.3 tonnes depending on body and use case. Powered by six high-voltage lithium-ion batteries with 420 V and 13.8 kWh each, the electric drivetrain with a permanent-magnet-motor delivers 129 kW (180hp) via a single-gear transmission in the rear axle. A single charge allows effective operating ranges of over 100km, which is more than enough for inner-city distribution.
