Mercedes-Benz Urban e-truck concept

First shown in incomplete form in July, the Mercedes-Benz Urban e-truck concept is considerably larger than the Volkswagen, and will likely remain a concept for now.

It's a medium-duty truck designed to shuttle heavier loads around cities.

Because of its larger size, the Mercedes needs a massive 212-kWh battery pack to achieve the same 124-mile range rating as the VW.

It is powered by two electric motors, both mounted to the rearmost of its three axles.

They produce a combined 250 kW (335 hp) and 737 lb-ft of torque.

Mercedes claims the payload of 28.6 tons is comparable to production diesel trucks of similar size.

The cab features displays that allow the driver to monitor energy flow.

The truck's systems can also predict whether there is enough charge to make it to the next stop on the route, and relays this information to the driver as well.

Were the Urban e-truck to go into production, Mercedes says it would encourage customers to install energy-storage and charging systems to provide electricity at a vehicle's home base.

The company says a production version of the Urban e-truck couldn't be ready until next decade at the earliest.

In the meantime, Mercedes parent Daimler will continue to deploy its Fuso eCanter (formerly known as the Canter e-Cell) in pilot programs in Europe.

That would be a very reflective vehicle in the sun
