Mercedes-Benz Trucks has revealed that Hegelmann group has signed a Letter of Intent for the order of 50 eActros LongHaul trucks. The electric vehicles are to be delivered to the company following the start of series production in 2024.

Commenting on the announcement of the order, Stina Fagerman, Head of Sales, Marketing and Services at Mercedes-Benz Trucks, said:
“To make transportation sustainable and emission-free for the future, we need many strong partners at our side. Therefore, we are very pleased about this agreement and the confidence of the Hegelmann Group in the Mercedes-Benz Trucks brand.”
Writing on its LinkedIn Page, the Hegelmann Group, added:
“The new eActros LongHaul presented at the IAA TRANSPORTATION definitely convinced us. That’s why we didn’t hesitate and ordered 50 of the long-haul trucks in advance for 2024. With this, we want to make our transport even more sustainable in the future.”
Following its presentation at the IAA in Hanover, the eActros LongHaul will be tested on public roads for the first time this year. Next year, intensive customer testing with near-series production ready prototypes is also planned.
