The prestigious industry award is presented to particularly innovative trucks by the International Truck of the Year (IToY) jury, which is made up of 25 experienced commercial vehicle journalists from important international media from Europe and other countries. Decisive for the vote was the innovative overall technological concept with LFP battery technology, the new e-axle, as well as Mercedes-Benz Trucks’ high development speed.

The heavy battery-electric eActros LongHaul for long-distance transport is Mercedes-Benz Trucks’ trade show highlight and was unveiled as a concept prototype at a press conference in the run-up to the IAA. The e-truck has a range of around 500 km (310 miles) on a single battery charge and is capable of high-performance charging. Readiness for series production is planned for 2024.

In recent years, the Mercedes-Benz eActros for heavy-duty distribution transport and the hydrogen-based fuel cell truck Mercedes-Benz GenH2 Truck have also won the Innovation Award.
