The advantages of truck electrification

Electrify your business:
For a sustainable and green future

Although trucks account for only 2% of all vehicles on the road, they are responsible for over 22% of CO2 emissions in the EU. Individual cities and countries have already imposed a transit ban on trucks to further reduce CO2 emissions. However, to further promote the electrification of heavy goods traffic, the EU has already decided on CO2 limits for trucks with a gross vehicle weight of more than 16 tons - CO2 emissions must be reduced by 15 percent by 2025 and 30% by 2030. Alternative drive systems are essential for this.

The challenges of truck electrification

No access to cities due to high CO2 load ­­(last mile) 

A dynamic and constantly changing environment

Lack of experience, transparency, and low availability

High costs for the development of batteries with an uncertain purchase volume

Limited packaging space

Loss of range

Our solution for your business

We offer you everything you need for the electrification of trucks out of one hand: battery, thermal management, and an expert at your side. The dimensions of our battery are a perfect fit for your ladder frame chassis. The batteries can simply be installed in an existing truck instead of the fuel tanks. Thanks to our modular system, you can choose the number of battery packs (400/800 V voltage level). Our Vehicle Interface Box makes integration into the vehicle straightforward and uncomplicated.

Standardized Battery System for commercial vehicles

With our standard battery system you get the best of both worlds: You benefit from the price and quality of a mass product as well as from the accurate fit of a customized solution. Thanks to its modular, scalable and geometric design and its high stability, our standard battery system is suitable for a wide range of vehicles of all kinds.
