DTNA delivers two eCascadias to Goodwill Industries New Mexico

Since the start of production in 2022, the battery-electric Freightliner eCascadia has been delivered to over 50 fleets in North America.

Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) delivered two battery-electric Freightliner eCascadias manufactured in Portland, Oregon, to Goodwill Industries of New Mexico (GINM). State government officials, including Governor Michelle Grisham, alongside GINM representatives, unveiled the eCascadias with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and press conference. These electric Class 8 tractors will join GINM’s fleet of trucks in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and represent the first zero-emission, heavy-duty tractors added to their fleet and the first eCascadias operating in the state, Goodwill said.

“Delivering the first electric Freightliner eCascadias to Goodwill Industries of New Mexico marks a significant milestone in our efforts to promote sustainable transportation solutions across the nation and support organizations with strong community impact,” David Carson, SVP sales and marketing at DTNA said.

GINM partnered with New Mexico’s Environment Department (NMED) to apply for a grant through the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA), which covered 45% of the vehicles’ initial purchase price. The Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM) and Wagner Equipment installed accompanying electric infrastructure, including the transformers and charging station.

Since the start of production in 2022, the battery-electric Freightliner eCascadia has been delivered to over 50 fleets in North America and covered more than four million electric miles in real-world customer applications, DTNA said.

The eCascadia offers various battery and drive axle configurations, delivering a typical range of 155, 220 or 230 miles, depending on the specifications. Recharging takes as little as 90 minutes to reach 80% capacity.
