Sweden driving forward the transport transition with the eEconic.
Sweden’s capital is a pioneer in environmentally and climate-friendly road transport. In as early as 2017, Stockholm was one of the first cities in the world to introduce a congestion charge to reduce traffic and improve air quality. Swedish traffic safety company TMA Bolaget AB has also embraced this pioneering spirit in its project to reduce noise and emissions. It goes without saying that they have done this with an eEconic. Or, to be more precise: with two.
Idyllic location as a curse and blessing.
Sweden’s capital is embedded in a unique natural landscape. On Stockholm’s 14 islands, more than 50 bridges connect the city centre with the eastern part of Lake Mälaren and the Baltic Sea. But Stockholm’s idyllic location is both a curse and a blessing: the constant growth of the metropolis presents the mobility sector in particular with increasing challenges.
At the same time, Stockholm is focused on sustainable and natural urban development. In addition to a large number of parks and green spaces as well as the expansion of the bicycle network, the reduction of CO₂ emissions plays a significant role in this. And it’s no wonder that the number of electric trucks on Swedish roads is by the minute.
The same also applies to TMA Bolaget AB. The company has recently added two new eEconic vehicles to its fleet. It is the first time that Mercedes-Benz Trucks has delivered electric TMA vehicles in Sweden.
THE TWO eEconic ARE AN IMPORTANT DECISION FOR OUR FUTURE PATH.
