The holiday season is a period of joy, celebration, and giving. But it also comes with a lot of environmental challenges, such as increased carbon emissions, waste, and energy consumption. That’s why Mercedes-Benz and Coca-Cola have teamed up to make this year’s Christmas truck tour more sustainable and eco-friendly than ever.

What is the Christmas truck tour?

The Christmas truck tour is a popular tradition that started in 1995 when Coca-Cola launched a TV ad featuring a convoy of red trucks decorated with lights and the iconic Santa Claus image. Since then, the trucks have become a symbol of the festive spirit, traveling across different countries and bringing happiness to millions of people.

The trucks also support various charitable causes, such as collecting donations, food, and toys for the less fortunate. This year, the tour is partnering with the Salvation Army to help those in need during the pandemic.

The Mercedes-Benz eActros is a fully electric truck that is designed for heavy-duty urban distribution transport. It is part of the eMobility initiative by Mercedes-Benz Trucks, which aims to achieve zero local emissions and low noise levels in the truck industry.

The Mercedes-Benz eActros has a range of up to 249 miles on a single charge, depending on the number of batteries, load, and driving conditions. It can be charged in about an hour and a half with a charging capacity of 160 kW. It also comes with various safety features, such as Active Brake Assist, Sideguard Assist, and a fire detection and alarm system.

The eActros is not only a truck but also a part of an integrated solution that includes eConsulting and digital services. Mercedes-Benz Trucks offers customized advice and support to customers who want to switch to electric mobility, such as planning the optimal route, charging infrastructure, and maintenance.

This year, Mercedes-Benz Trucks is providing two eActros trucks to accompany the Coca-Cola Christmas truck tour through Austria. The eActros trucks will transport the goods and equipment needed for the tour, such as beverages, merchandise, and stage elements.

The eActros trucks will demonstrate how electric mobility can be implemented in the transport sector, while also reducing the environmental impact of the tour. The trucks will save about 20 tons of CO2 emissions compared to conventional diesel trucks, according to Mercedes-Benz Trucks.

The eActros trucks will also showcase the innovative and futuristic design of the electric truck, which features a striking front end with LED daytime running lights and a black panel grille. The trucks will also have a special branding with the Coca-Cola and eActros logos, as well as the slogan “Enjoy the Future.”
