Rizon, the newest brand of Daimler Truck, which is offering all-electric Class 4 and 5 medium-duty trucks for the US market, has achieved full homologation in the United States, clearing the way for the sale of their electric trucks in the country. Daimler Truck launched its new electric truck brand in May this year.

Rizon recently received both Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certification and dual CARB Executive Orders and is in full compliance with the U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. The first deliveries of vehicles are set to commence in Q4 of 2023 through dealer networks in California.

Rizon has on offer its series-production zero-emissions trucks in classes 4 and 5, through four model variants – the e18L, e18M, e16L, and the e16M. RIZON Daimler Trucks states that Rizon trucks are ideally suited to urban and last-mile deliveries and routes of up to 150 miles (240km) per day. They support a versatile mix of configurations suitable to each customer’s unique requirements that include box trucks, flatbeds, stake beds, refrigerated, and other body types.

The Class 4 and 5 medium-duty battery-electric vehicles, ranging from 15,995 lbs up to 17,995 lbs in gross vehicle weight (GVW), can run from 120-170km (M size variant with 2 battery packs) to 170-250km (L size variant with 3 battery packs) on a single charge.

Rizon trucks are capable of being charged by two types of battery charging systems: DC Fast Charging (via CCS1 connector), and less expensive Level 2 AC Charging (via J1772 connector).
