Daimler Trucks unveils for the first time Heavy-duty, Battery-electric eActros LongHaul long Distance Truck.
Range of the truck will be 500km on single charge and can be charged with megawatt charging stations.
Karin Rådström, CEO Mercedes-Benz Trucks: “We are continuously expanding our portfolio of battery-electric trucks. Our focus is on offering clear advantages to our customers. Therefore, our electric trucks are specifically designed for e-mobility, giving them better drivability, energy efficiency and durability.”
- total energy = 600kWh (using 3 packs in parallel)
- Packs made by CATL
- usable energy =
- peak power ~ 667kW (600kW peak motor power and assuming 90% efficiency)
- continuous power ~444kW (400kW continuous motor power and assuming 90% efficiency)
- nominal voltage [V]
- capacity [Ah]
- voltage range [V]
- weight =
- volume =
- pack dimensions x,y,z [m]
- number of cells [#]
- charge time [minutes] = 30 mins (20% to 80%) @ 1MW charging output station.
- cooling system
- cell make and model
- CATL prismatic LFP (or maybe M3P)
- CATL Cell to Pack design
Cell to Pack is all about reducing cost and increasing the volumetric density of battery packs. This is primarily aimed at road vehicle battery design.
- cell Chemistry = Lithium-iron phosphate (LFP)
- pack cost
- “Its unique battery solutions for commercial vehicles featuring an LFP chemistry system with zero fading within 1500 cycles”
Using these we can ascertain a number of the key pack metrics:
- Cell to Pack mass ratio
- Cell to Pack volume ratio
