eCanter 7.49T

Logical Alternative.

The Next Generation eCanter 7.49 t is the best choice as a fully electrically powered light duty truck for (almost) every job. Its local emission-free operation combined with its convincing key data make it an ideal vehicle for almost all logistics applications.

With the L-size battery pack, it offers a range of up to 200 km */** and is thus more than up to the average daily operational profile of a typical 7.5-tonners on the last mile. The Next Generation eCanter has also lost nothing in terms of practicality thanks to its electrification. Absolute manoeuvrability thanks to compact dimensions combined with maximum load volume characterise it just as much as the diesel version – with a body length of 7.2 m, the Next Generation eCanter also has up to 15 pallet spaces.

FUSO offers it in four different wheelbases – 3,400 mm, 3,850 mm, 4,450 mm and 4,750 mm – and equips it with battery packs in M (up to 140 km range) and L (up to 200 km range) – depending on the wheelbase chosen.

With a wheelbase of 4,450 mm and equipped with the L-battery, the Next Generation eCanter incidentally brings 3,740 kg maximum chassis payload. This is slightly less than what comparable 7.5-tonne trucks with diesel drive can offer – but therefore, it is locally CO2-free, quiet, not affected by emissions-related driving bans and sustainable.

eCanter Battery

Battery Packs. Medium and Large.

FUSO equips the Next Generation eCanter 7.49 t with two different battery pack options, M-Pack and L-Pack, depending on the selected wheelbase.

  • LFP (lithium iron phosphate) batteries are less dependent on raw materials such as nickel, cobalt or manganese. They have a long life span and are generally considered safe.
  • The nominal capacity of the batteries is 83.6 kWh (M, up to 140 km range) and 123.9 kWh (L, up to 200 km range). */**
  • The battery allows the use of an above-average 94 % of the nominal capacity.
  • An effective water cooling system always keeps the battery at an optimal temperature and thus positively influences the battery’s life span.
  • In the event of a defect or damage, the battery can be replaced individually.

Range Increase. Active and Passive.

The Next Generation eCanter 7.49 t has various functions that contribute to maximise the range.

  • Four different levels of recuperation modes help the driver to regenerate braking energy, which is fed back into the battery, thereby extending the range.
  • A special optional range package with individual heated components, such as the steering wheel, windscreen and driver’s seat, which consume little energy, conserves batteries compared to the cab heater.

eCanter Charging

Charging Solutions. Compatible and Practical.

The Next Generation eCanter 7.49 t is compatible with both AC and DC charging technology and with all mains voltages in all major markets.

  • Unlike other electric trucks, it does not necessarily require a cost-intensive DC charging station (high-performance charging).
  • Setting up an AC (alternating current) charging infrastructure is simpler and more cost-effective.
  • The charging power for AC charging is 22 kW (M and L battery). An 8-metre charging cable for corresponding charging points is standard.
  • Depending on the charging capacity and the size of the battery pack, the average charging time for AC charging is between 3.5 and 5 hours. ***
  • The customer can order a suitable AC wall box from Siemens directly from his FUSO dealer.
  • For DC charging with an input power of 104 kW, the average charging time is between 30 minutes and 1.5 hours. ***
  • It is possible to unlock the charging plug at the charging socket. Access to the cabin is therefore not necessary.
  • The vehicle menu function SoC (State of Charge) supports an optimised charging strategy that reduces charging time and is based on the driver’s usage data. He can also set a target value (Target SoC) which, when reached, automatically ends the charging process.

Safety. Protect and Support.

The Next Generation eCanter 7.49 t is equipped with various modern assistance and safety systems.

  • ABS, ESP, as well as Active Brake Assist (emergency braking system), LDWS (lane departure warning system), Active Sideguard Assist (cornering assistant) and driver airbag are standard.
  • The new standard electric parking brake secures the vehicle against rolling away.
  • LED daytime running lights, LED front lights and LED rear lights are standard. The LED headlights are 30% brighter than halogen models and consume less energy. The LED tail lights increase energy efficiency and emphasise the fresh and modern design.
  • The standard Autolight function controls the driving lights depending on the lighting conditions.
  • Also standard is the camera-based Intelligent Highbeam Assist, which automatically controls high or low beams.
  • AVAS (Accoustic Vehicle Alert System) generates artificial vehicle sounds and warning sounds when driving slowly and reversing to warn other road users.
  • An optional reinforced rear underride guard offers even better protection in the event of rear-end collisions.

* Range data is based on test results under limited test conditions. Electricity consumption (EE) may vary according to various external conditions such as loading, driving style, weather, battery age and vehicle options. Therefore, the range is an estimation depending on individual vehicle usage and these external factors. The real range can be below or above the mentioned values.

** The values have been derived under the following conditions: Load condition of 50% payload, body application as box body, ambient temperature of 20 °C and an average battery age.

*** The charging time depends on various factors such as the charging capacity of the vehicle, the charging capacity of the charging station, the state of charge (SoC) of the battery and the ambient and battery temperature. The values are based on internally determined empirical values under optimal conditions of 20 °C ambient temperature.
