CLIMATE-NEUTRAL FREIGHT TRAFFIC
Als Body specialist for Municipal vehicles we bring a wealth of experience in testing alternative drive systems. It began in 2006 with DUALPOWER, an electric vehicle with a small diesel generator and supercaps into which the braking energy was temporarily stored. 20 vehicles were on the road in the precincts and gave us new impulses for the next concept: FUELCELL - a refuse vehicle whose body was powered by hydrogen. Energy losses, fuel prices and climate protection have brought us to electromobility and hydrogen.
