Rolling Out the First Electric Trucks

Daimler Truck is rolling out the first electric trucks in its new RIZON Truck brand, sending out an order to several companies across California.

The all-electric US class 4 and 5 trucks ‘address a diverse range of customers’, Daimler says, as it looks to continue to develop its commitment to sustainable transport solutions.

While there are still more trucks on order, this batch of 20 e18L RIZON trucks will be delivered to LA Sanitation and Environment (seven trucks), Diamond Environmental (four trucks), Ecorecycling (three trucks), Velocity Truck Rental and Leasing (five trucks) and Goodwill Industries of San Diego County (one truck).

“I’m very excited the first RIZON trucks are now in operation,” said Andreas Deuschle, Global Head of RIZON Truck.

“I congratulate our valued customers for their decision to pioneer the electrification of commercial vehicle transportation in the United States, and I am very proud that RIZON is their brand of choice.

“Being part of the Daimler Truck Group provides us with experience and knowledge coming from our electric products of trucks and buses around the globe.

“Our all‐new RIZON trucks inherited all this expertise which results in a very mature system: innovative eAxle concept, latest safety features, a wide variety of body applications, and a flexible battery concept.”

Daimler says the RIZON trucks can handle up to 250km of driving per day, and are currently distributed exclusively by Velocity EV through centres in California.
