PORTLAND, Ore. — Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) has announced its partnership with Hexagon Purus to provide complete vehicle integration of the battery electric Freightliner eM2.
The integration will incorporate Hexagon Purus’ proprietary zero-emission technology, which includes battery systems, auxiliary modules and more, according to a news release.
It will also have power-take-off options for supplying power to the vocational body and the equipment.
DTNA executives said their decision to agree to this partnership was based on the long-standing relationship and shared expertise with Hexagon Purus. In a previous project where both parties worked together, DTNA worked with the Agility division of Hexagon on developing a Freightliner natural gas fuel tank integration and Hexagon’s zero-emission division on the first generation of electric vehicles of DTNA.
