WAS E-Concept: E-Mobility for the Emergency Services

The topic of e-mobility for cars has been hot topic for a while. Technical developments continue to build up, influencing related technologies and even share prices. We have taken that as a signal that it’s high time to look into the suitability of new driveline technology for special vehicle builds and emergency service vehicles. With our E-Concept, we thoroughly address the issue of whether electric power is a suitable alternative for larger response vehicles with weights of up to five tonnes. This pilot project is not yet intended to develop a prototype that is ready for use; instead, it aims to move ideas forward and set processes in motion. We understand the theory, and we are now giving practical impetus to e-mobility for the emergency services.
