Leading the Charge in eMobility
The Freightliner eCascadia delivers the outstanding performance and capability our customers expect in an emissions-free package they have been asking for. It’s the result of our commitment to develop world-class, all-electric commercial vehicles that will reduce emissions and improve our customers’ total cost of ownership (TCO).
Velocity Truck Centers & Freightliner utilizes the global engineering expertise of Daimler to bring this practical, game-changing technology to market. Following a highly collaborative process with our customers, production of the eCascadia is set to begin in mid-2022. It will bring a clean commercial transportation solution to reality that will have a positive impact on our customers and the industry as a whole.

While its electric drive is revolutionary, its foundation is legendary. The eCascadia is built on North America’s best-selling class-8 on-highway platform with millions of miles of proven performance. It has earned a reputation for efficiency and capability, making it the choice of drivers and owners who demand more for their money. The eCascadia does not disappoint.
• Short-haul, last-mile logistics
• 80,000-lb. gross vehicle weight
• Heavy-duty highway tractor designed for local and regional distribution and drayage
• Warehouse to warehouse
• Start of production is scheduled for mid-2022 at DTNA Portland Truck Manufacturing Plant which is a zero-waste-to-landfill facility and will be powered by 100% clean energy
eCascadia means business, but never at the expense of driver safety or comfort. Thorough and
thoughtful features include a sloped hood for better visibility, an ergonomic wraparound dash,
steering wheel and column with integrated controls and power adjustable seat. When you factor
in industry-leading aerodynamics, a suspension that lowers at speed to reduce drag and the mere
presence of the Freightliner badge, you get a truck that’s the envy of the road.
