Mercedes eActros 600 undergoes extreme weather testing ahead of October launch

Further signs the new Mercedes eActros 600 is on course for its debut in Q4 2023 with the release of pictures from the latest testing phase of the truck amid the scorching heat of southern Spain.


The eActros 600 is on course for its global debut on October 10, 2023, judging by the release of further images of the vehicle undergoing durability testing in the heat of Andalusia. “We have subjected the eActros 600 to rigorous testing procedures since last year,” said Konrad Götz, the Deputy Head of Global Testing at Mercedes-Benz Trucks. ”After winter testing in Finland in freezing cold temperatures down to minus 25 degrees Celsius and initial tests on public roads, the electric truck now had to prove itself at over 40 degrees Celsius in Spain. The eActros 600 mastered the challenging tests with ease. In the next step, we’re now looking forward to testing in real-life operation with our customers.”
