The advantages of municipal vehicle electrification

Electrify your business:
For a sustainable and green future

Particularly in cities, we need to continue to reduce CO2 emissions as well as decrease reliance on fossil fuels for transportation. With regard to municipal equipment carriers, unfortunately, we are still not seeing enough electrification measures.

There is, however, great potential here, especially in the area of municipal vehicles: Vehicles are only used over short distances and the reduction of noise and exhaust emissions can have a positive impact on people’s living conditions. Overall, only 0.0002% of vehicles in Germany are municipal vehicles; however, studies show that they cause a very high level of pollutant emissions. They are responsible for 20% of nitrogen oxide emissions and even 52% of particle emissions out of all road traffic. That is why swift action must be taken in this area to make our cities greener and more sustainable.

The challenges of municipal vehicle electrification

Low volumes and thus higher costs for in-house development > still no series-production availability 

Tenders in cities are increasingly often for electric vehicles

Lack of availability of standardized battery systems

The development of alternative drives not as advanced when compared to passenger cars 

Limited installation space for the battery in various vehicle types
