The next-generation eCanter’s new features include greater range, additional safety and a fresh interior and exterior design. The eCanter line-up has grown with a variety of different wheelbases, weight ratings and a choice of City Cab or Wide Cab. 

The new design also features an eAxle, for the next generation eCanter, engineers have built the electric motor into the rear axle itself, so there is no need for a driveshaft, saving weight and reducing energy losses. A new eMotor has a maximum output of 129kW and 430Nm.

Freightliner’s top of the range 126 Road Train stood out on the Daimler. It features a 60-inch cab, a factory-developed bullbar designed to protect the truck without affecting the operation of the front radar unit used by the active safety pack. 

126 models feature the 16-litre six-cylinder DD16 Detroit engine with 600hp and 2050lb-ft of torque. It can be paired with a 12-speed Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) with GPS and topographic data maximising coasting and correct gear selection for the terrain. There is also an old-school 18-speed Eaton manual if preferred.
