Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!

This is the new Mercedes eActros! It's an all-electric lorry which shows what the future of haulage could look like... And Mat's got his hands on one for a review!

Given it has the ability to carry a max load of 27 tonnes, it'll come as no surprise that it requires some serious power to get around. Under the skin, you'll find a huge 400kWh battery pack (4 times the size of one in an EQS, no less!) along with electric motors which helps the eActros put down 540hp and 970Nm of torque. It also has a claimed range of 400km.

Now this may be a huge truck, but of course, it's also a carwow review, so you know Mat's going to have to launch it and perform a brake test! The question is, will he enjoy it so much that he'll want to review more trucks in the future? You'll have to keep watching to find out!

No. In Denmark you can indicate, what direction you want to do, before you enter a roundabout, but no one do that in practice, and if you do, people would think, that you are either one of those Eastern European truckers, who never sleep or that you are dimwitted. ONLY INDICATE, WHEN YOU LEAVE! As the man said!

Wait a minute. How it does not matter how much the battery weights in a truck? It takes your loading capacity and a shit ton of it literally. So you can't haul that much stuff. Seems like it has everything to do with the weight of the battery

Thanks for the left indicator, otherwise I would have thought you want to drive right. Left indicator in a roundabout is obsolete. You just can drive one way and you use your indicator when you're leaving. As simple as that. Everything else would be senseless 😂

Really nice truck but older guys like me won’t like it. Old school truck drivers like the big horsepower diesels with lots of gears to jam because that’s the masculine way. I remember my first time driving a Volvo with an automatic transmission and I loved it but others hated it. Electric is a whole different ball game again. The battery weight definitely does matter because it does affect the gross weight allowed by diminishing how much weight you can carry. The amount of distance the current batteries would allow would be okay for local daily deliveries but not for OTR operating in my view.

The Merc guy is right, if you are going straight through the round, about as you were, you indicate as you leave.

all ev's would benefit from a 2 speed box, direct drive is fine for now but would it not increase hwy range at decent speeds (150kph and above) and max top speed too. Its so funny seeing tesalas doing 120kph max in right(slow) lane to get optimal range, ppl passing them in 1.0 vw up-s

In Germany, we only indicate when we leave. Which actually makes sense because obviously everyone knows where you’re going when entering the roundabout… there’s only one direction lol
Maxwell Williams
Maxwell Williams преди ден
But what if your going straight ahead, then a car coming the opposite direction has to wait and see if you are going straight ahead or turning left before they enter the roundabout, opposed to knowing that if you aren't indicating that means you are going straight and they can enter the roundabout while you are still going through it. What about dual and triple lane roundabouts?!?

Common misconception about EVs is that they are environmentally friendly and sustainable. I am surprised I saw this kind of nonsense on a channel this big. EVs are only partially environmentally friendly if 100% of their recharge energy comes from renewable sources as it offsets the carbon footprint generated in the production of the EV . Otherwise the carbon footprint needed to produce such a vehicle is bigger than petrol/diesel vehicle. The reality is that majority of the countries in the world are not 100% renewable (not even close) so the majority of energy for recharging is coming from fossil fuels. So until countries are 100% renewable EVs will be Apple versions of cars. Much more expensive but not offering anything spectacular for the money.

Actually in the Netherlands, you’re being told that when entering a roundabout you indicate where you will go. So if you’re going to take the first exit, you indicate right. If you take the third one, you indicate left. This is not mandatory. However once you’re on the roundabout and you exit. You must indicate. What Mat did by before entering the roundabout, is exactly what I would’ve done. To let others know what your intentions are.

In the Netherlands you indicate when you enter. Also, to show people wanting to enter that you are staying on. Since I moved to Switzerland, I am very frustrated having to wait if people really leave the roundabout because they don't always indicate when they leave. So, Mat, well done for being stubborn about indicating before and on the roundabout!

Top speed under 50 mph makes it unsuitable for any highway. Dogshit range makes it unsuitable for long hauls. Front end design seems crash unsafe. Just a shit vehicle. Tesla’s semi looks far more promising.

He is wrong I think. If you turn left Signal left at enter signal right after second exit till you leaving. If you go straight no Signal at enter signal right after first exit. If you turn right signal right at enter till leaving. In UK ....That's how I know.

I live in germany and though Marcel's humour, or lack thereof would be mostly down to translation, there are many who get the British humour 😉

Indicating only when leaving works fine on big roundabouts, however I find here in germany, Indicating when leaving on small roundabouts can be confusing on small roundabouts, especially when turning the oncoming traffic has no idea what your intentions are.

I mean the rule is to only indicate when you exit the roundabout. There is no need to indicate when entering because there is only one way you can go. And people would think you are taking the first out
THE T I T A N преди 6 дни
@ass idk how it's done on the island. But you can hear him turning in the indicator when entering the roundabout. And then while in it, turning it on again. The Mercedes rep is telling him to only indicate when exiting. In German and large parts of Europe you are only supposed to indicate when you get close to your exit. In this case 3rd exit. Correct me if I'm wrong.
ass преди 6 дни
No, he meant indicating left when going off the 3rd exit, in UK you do it like that. (to the rightof course, its LHD)

For medium hauling distances that's quite nice! 25 tons with around 250km of range is enough. Plus when you charge it with more extreme speeds (+350kw) at logistic centers while loading/unloading it shouldn't be necessary to stop somewhere else.
Alex McBroom
Alex McBroom преди 6 дни
The weight of the batteries is very important, as it reduces load capacity and subsequently profitability. This is somewhat made up for by cheap charging but that is already changing. Some places are charging 80p/kwhr already which is not far off the price of regular diesel!

Alexander преди 7 дни
In the Netherlands you indicate left when you take 3 quarter of the roundabout, and indicate right when leaving it. When going straight (2 quarter), don't indicate when entering and indicate when leaving. And when turning right (1 quarter) only indicate right when entering and leave the indicator on. At least that's what I learned when I passed my driving test 12 years ago. I also think it really helps the traffic flow!

3:37 Marcel, you are so wrong buddy and not only that, you are so adamant about it, getting red face even... The roundabout is an intersection, not a priority road. Therefore before arriving at the roundabout you have the give away sign which by the European safety road rules, you'll have to indicate your direction with at least 50m before entering, even if you go forward. Unless you take the first exit for which you'd indicate right, you indicate left untill you exit indicating right. Only in Germany and Belgium most drivers practice what you preach not realizing that actually is disturbing the flow of traffic without being able to anticipate the others direction and above that not being able to be economic with the truck, diesel or EV Not only once I came to a complete stop finding very hard to start again with a 40T and traffic. Who is a trucker will relate to that. On the other hand, congrats to Mercedes Team for the EV Truck and hope semi's will be on the market soon! Keep distance and indicate! Safe trip out there!
