Daimler launches charging infrastructure program for electric trucks

The E-Mobility Group of Daimler Trucks & Buses is launching an initiative to develop a charging infrastructure for electric trucks. The eTruck Charging Initiative will begin by focusing on charging stations at the depots of truck customers in the US and Europe. The Japanese market will follow.

The initiative will bring together e-truck customers, power grid operators, energy suppliers, charging hardware manufacturers and charging software providers, says Daimler.

Gesa Reimelt, Head of the E-Mobility Group at Daimler Trucks & Buses, said, “We are taking an active role in driving forward the change towards battery-electric road transport—also beyond our e-trucks and consulting services.”
