Daimler Trucks is trying to gain a foothold in the nascent electric-truck market with short-range haulers that can make New York City’s clogged streets cleaner and quieter.

At an event in Manhattan’s fashionable Soho neighborhood, the Daimler AG unit unveiled its new Fuso eCanter, an electric light-duty truck produced under the Mitsubishi Fuso brand. The hauler has a range of 60 to 80 miles (97 to 129 kilometers) between charges, depending on body, load and usage, Marc Llistosella, chief executive officer of Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corp., said Thursday.
