Daimler Trucks North America has chosen the Swedish-American energy storage manufacturer NorthStar Battery Company as the supplier of Ultra High Performance Pure Lead AGM batteries on its next generation Cascadia truck.

NorthStar underwent Daimler’s comprehensive audit and testing process in competition with other well-known brands to gain approval, according to DTNA. NorthStar puts its own batteries through rigorous testing to ensure a consistent product.

In addition to its inclusion in new Cascadia models, the NorthStar battery is also available as an extended life option on the majority of DTNA platforms.

“Effective today, NorthStar is available as a replacement battery through the DTNA dealer network across North America,” said John Semeniuk, president, Transportation Products, NorthStar Battery Group. “NorthStar is also the primary supplier of batteries on the ParkSmart truck platform, and can be ordered as a factory option upgrade on most other models, providing DTNA customers the most powerful performance today.”
