The truck isn't on sale yet, per se. Mercedes will first deliver a "low two-figure" number of trucks to German customers, eventually expanding across Europe. There will be two sizes, 18 tonnes and 25 tonnes (based on gross vehicle weight), and it will be offered in three configurations -- refrigerated body, dry box body and platform.
