Fuso Canter E-Cell electric truck begins on-road trials

Based on a 3,400mm wheelbase Canter, the Canter E-Cell features a single cab and a choice of 4.3 or 4.4-metre box bodies and is under small series production at the manufacturer's factory in Tramagal, Portugal.

The electric drivetrain produces 148bhp, used to drive the rear wheels, and features four battery packs fitted in two boxes on either side of the frame. On a conventional 230V supply these will reach 100% capacity in seven hours, reduced to one hour on a rapid charge.

Fully charged, the Canter E-Cell will travel over 62 miles, said to make it ideal for short routes on urban roads, environmental zones and pedestrian areas.

Participants include the cities of Lisbon and Abrantes, Portuguese national postal service, energy supplier REN, Porto municipal airport and distribution company Transporta.
