The Freightliner eM2, manufactured at DTNA’s plant in Portland, Oregon, is now being distributed to customers across the USA. PITT OHIO, a transportation, warehouse, and logistics services company, is the first to deploy the eM2.

According to the information which was presented when the vehicle was first introduced in May last year, the final eM2 variants comprise a single-motor US Class 6 truck with 142 kW of continuous power and a 194-kWh battery for 180 miles (290 km) of range, and a twin-engine Class 7 version with 190 kW continuous power and a 291-kWh battery for 250 miles (400 km) of range.

“The technology is rapidly evolving. It’s exciting to see how fast this change is occurring, resulting in significant improvements both in range and payload that are nearer to our conventional units (than earlier battery electric vehicles),” said Taki Darakos, PITT OHIO’s vice president of vehicle maintenance and fleet services. “We appreciate the support of all our partners involved and look forward to their performance in our operation.”
