RIZON begins US electric truck deliveries – Charged EVs


The first batch of Daimler Truck’s electric RIZON models to be delivered in the US was recently supplied to customers in California, and more units are scheduled to follow. 

Manufactured in Japan, RIZON trucks are designed for urban and last-mile delivery applications and routes of up to 160 miles per day. Available configurations include box trucks, flatbeds, stake beds, reefers and other body types.

Among the initial US customers is LA Sanitation & Environment, which is deploying seven e18L RIZON trucks with stake bed bodies for delivery of home trash bins to Los Angeles residents. Other deliveries were made to Goodwill Industries of San Diego County, which is integrating an e18L RIZON dry van box truck into its fleet, and Diamond Environmental, which will use four e18L RIZON trucks to deliver and service portable restrooms.

Ecorecycling is deploying three e18L RIZON dry van trucks to transport clothing and book donations to its sorting warehouse, and Velocity Truck Rental & Leasing has taken delivery of five e18L RIZON box trucks that will be available for rental or lease.

“Being part of the Daimler Truck Group provides us with experience and knowledge coming from our electric products of trucks and buses around the globe,” said Andreas Deuschle, Global Head of RIZON Truck. “Our all-new RIZON trucks inherited all of this expertise, which results in a very mature system: innovative eAxle concept, latest safety features, a wide variety of body applications, and a flexible battery concept.”
