Daimler : Trucks North America Launches Detroit eConsulting, Introduces Detroit eFill Chargers for Battery Electric Trucks

05/04/2021 | 11:40am EDT

Portland, Ore. - Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) today announced all-new products and services from Detroit to support fleets and customers in the deployment of all-electric trucks. Leveraging the expertise from over 20 customer deployments of electric medium- and heavy-duty Freightliner trucks and three years of development work, Detroit eConsulting services provide experienced know-how to fleets and are offered in three varying levels of support. Similarly, the Detroit eFill line of electric commercial vehicle chargers provide an array of charger options for customers and charging station operators.

'Detroit has led the way in reshaping transportation for over 80 years, and with the new eConsulting services and eFill chargers, we are prepared to help support our customers as we embark on the journey into our collective electric future,' said Richard Howard, senior vice president, on-highway sales and marketing, DTNA. 'With the same level of dedication and expertise our customers depend on today for their conventionally-powered trucks, our knowledgeable Detroit team is prepared to support customers every step of the way on the road to electrification.'

Detroit eConsulting

Detroit's eConsulting services are provided by a team of eMobility experts wholly dedicated to supporting customers navigate electric truck conversion. Three service packages are offered, including: Baseline, Powerline, or Megaline. Under the top-tier Megaline package and recommended for large-scale electric truck deployments, customers receive assistance with planning for charging infrastructure, solar panel, and stationary energy storage projects, along with the support of the eConsulting team to interface with local utilities on their behalf. Additional services in the package include a comprehensive cost-benefit and route analysis, and assistance with capital and operating expenditure optimization.

The Powerline package includes similar benefits to those found in the Megaline package, without support for distributed energy resources (e.g. solar, storage) or the interface to local utilities. The Baseline package - free to all purchasers of Freightliner electric trucks - includes best practices and dealership-level consultation. The two higher-tier packages are available to buyers of any electric trucks, and services are not dependent on purchase of a Freightliner truck. Detroit eConsulting solutions and services can be further tailored by customers - in consultation with Detroit - to fit their specific needs.

'Detroit eConsulting is a truly unique offering as we are staffed by experienced experts who have thus far supported more than 20 customers with infrastructure projects and electric truck deployments,' said Rakesh Aneja, head of eMobility, DTNA. 'There is no team in the industry better-suited to assist both Freightliner customers, as well as other brands' buyers, with navigating the transition to electric trucks.'

Detroit eFill

Coinciding with the launch of Detroit eConsulting, the Detroit team introduces Detroit eFill chargers, a full line of commercial vehicle charging stations designed for seamless integration with the Detroit ePowertrain found in Freightliner eCascadia and eM2 trucks. Detroit eFill chargers are extensively tested, warrantied for five years, and versatile enough to charge a wide range of other brands' electric commercial vehicles. Detroit eFill stations were developed in partnership with Power Electronics, the leading North American supplier of converters for utility scale solar and global leader in advanced energy storage systems, and installers of more than 45 gigawatts of power capacity in 2020.

All Detroit eFill chargers available at launch are DC fast chargers carrying the CCS-1 standard, the most common type of electric vehicle charger. Detroit eFill chargers are available with power ratings from 30 kW to as much as 400 kW, providing a scalable solution to enable everyone - from fleets with one or two trucks to truck stop operators running complete charger islands and multiple power cabinets - to benefit from the same quality and reliability with which the Detroit name is synonymous.

Added Aneja, 'The Detroit eFill line of chargers provide our valued customers a reliable, durable option for their dealerships, their operations centers, or truck stops, and are designed for long-term usability to enable us all to move forward into the electric future starting now.'
