Earlier this year, the orders for eCascadia and eM2 opened, which made DTNA witness a high demand for its electric trucks already.

He says, there have been a million miles of learning with customers, and they are ready to move from prototype to scale, from tens of customer experience to hundreds of units.

Aneja added that they remain committed to continuously scale-up the vehicle technology, reduce the cost of ownership, and enhance infrastructure development.

The company says that its commitment to electrification goes beyond trucks; with the addition of the Detroit eConsulting team, the customers will witness a streamlined end-to-end process as they go on to electrify their fleet and also navigate the infrastructure.

The Detroit eConsulting team will navigate some of the key issues that the fleets will face, which include coaching driver behavior, elevating in-cabin experience, assessment of the route as well as installation of charging equipment.
