01 February 2021

Rakesh Aneja

Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) today announced the appointment of Rakesh Aneja as the company’s new head of eMobility, reporting directly to Roger Nielsen, president and CEO of DTNA. Aneja assumes the role vacated by Michael Scheib, who has been promoted to the role of head of Product Management at Mercedes-Benz Trucks in Germany.

“Rakesh’s technical background and incredible Daimler experience make him extremely well-suited to take the helm of the leading eMobility program in the commercial vehicle industry,” said Nielsen. “As an industry, we are well on our way to our CO₂-neutral future that will benefit all of us – fleets, drivers and the public alike – and with Rakesh’s stewardship, we will hasten that transition at DTNA.”

In his new role, Aneja will lead all eMobility activities at DTNA, including product strategy, platform management, customer consulting and charging infrastructure services. He will also serve as program lead for the medium-duty Freightliner eM2 and heavy-duty eCascadia, both slated for start of limited production in 2022.

Aneja started his career at Detroit Diesel Corp. (DDC) in 1998. During his tenure at Daimler, he has held a variety of engineering management and program leadership roles in multiple countries, including a four-year assignment in Stuttgart, all of which largely focused on advancing propulsion technologies. Most recently, Aneja led DTNA’s powertrain engineering organization at Detroit.

“After 20-odd years at Detroit and in the Motor City, I believe that both continue to be destined for great things,” said Aneja. “Going forward, I am incredibly excited to leverage the collective strength of Daimler and serve our valued North American customers with the industry-leading eMobility experience.”
