Daimler Truck welcomes eEconic as a new employee.
When it comes to the future, something is happening behind the factory gates at Daimler Truck. The all-electric eEconic is being promoted to a new work area: haulage. At the Wörth plant. Right where the eEconic itself is manufactured. At the commercial vehicle trade fair NUFAM 2023, body manufacturer Bickel-Tec presents the eEconic adapted for transport. In addition, the general agency Knoblauch from Immendingen presents a broad portfolio of Unimog with various bodies at the fair. And of course, the hydrogen-powered Unimog WaVe also makes an appearance.
Back to the roots.
In Wörth, the eEconic will soon not only be in, but also at the factory. The electrically powered truck transports exactly the same chassis that will later be installed in its fellow vehicles: from the end of the production line to the coating facility. The motto: eEconic transports eEconic.
But this is no ordinary eEconic from the production line. If you can ever speak of “ordinary” at all when it comes to the eEconic.
Climate-friendly and weather-resistant.
When hauling such strong chassis, you need broad shoulders: that's why the in-house transformation specialists at Custom Tailored Trucks have lengthened the wheelbase of the eEconic from 4.00 to 5.50 m. The new Wörth factory helper now measures a proud 12 m in length, 3 m in width and 4 m in height. Its payload, including the body, is an impressive 13,035 kg.
And the wheelbase is not the only special design that distinguishes the eEconic in Wörth from its model colleagues.
