Daimler India to enter light-duty truck segment with next-generation eCanter

Daimler India Commercial Vehicles, a wholly owned subsidiary of Daimler Truck, plans to introduce the next-generation eCanter to the Indian market in the next 6-12 months.

Production of the eCanter began in 2017 at Daimler Truck subsidiary Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus in Japan. The next-generation model eCanter premiered in Japan and Europe in 2022. Daimler plans to provide 40 variants of between 4.25 and 8.55 tons, as well as numerous body options.

The debut of the truck in India is part of Daimler Truck’s goal to produce only CO2-neutral new trucks and buses in Europe, Japan and the US by 2039 and globally by 2050.

“The reality is that diesel ICE and CO2-neutral propulsion technologies will continue to coexist in the Indian market for the foreseeable future,” said Satyakam Arya, Managing Director and CEO, Daimler India Commercial Vehicles. “Therefore, our initial focus with the eCanter is to achieve product and service excellence, along with customer acceptance.”
