Daimler Motor-Lastwagen - 1898 Scale - 1:43

The first truck in the world was created by the Daimler Motoren Gesellschaft in 1896. With a payload capacity of 1.5 ton, this truck, that had iron clad wooden wheels was driven by a 4 hp, 2-cylinder “Phoenix” engine and the very first model was shipped to England. Technically, it was not a truck as the motorized engine was just connected to a horse-drawn cart.

With more modifications and improvement in engine power (now with 2.2 litre, power output of 6 hp), the Daimler Motor-Lastwagen built in 1897 was a real truck as the engine was now placed below the driver’s seat,  ahead of the axle with transmission through a 4-speed gearbox. This new truck had a modified radiator, and a Bosch made magneto ignition switch. It could carry 2.75 tons and travel at a speed of 11 km/hr. 

Production of this new truck was ramped up in 1898 when most of the brewery owners preferred to use this new mode of surface transport.
