Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) has entered into a long-term agreement with Hexagon Purus, a manufacturer of zero-emission mobility and infrastructure solutions, to provide complete vehicle integration of the battery electric Freightliner eM2, which was developed to serve vocational applications.
The integration will incorporate Hexagon Purus’ zero-emission technology, including battery systems, auxiliary modules, power modules and vehicle-level software. It will also include power-take-off (PTO) options to supply power to the vocational body and the equipment, the companies said.
“We are excited about our collaboration with Hexagon Purus and the potential it holds for the future of electric vocational trucks,” said Aaron Scates, vice president of vocational and medium-duty market development at DTNA. “With our shared history, combined experience, and the remarkable battery technology offered by Hexagon Purus, we look forward to yielding effective and flexible solutions for our vocational customers.”
“We are proud to continue our long-standing relationship with DTNA, and we look forward to supporting them on this vocational vehicle program and in driving their transition to zero-emission mobility,” said Morten Holum, CEO of Hexagon Purus. “DTNA has been an important zero-emission technology development partner for Hexagon Purus in North America for several years through our participation in the Innovation Fleet program.”
