ECONOMIC E-MOBILITY FOR COMMERCIAL VEHICLES
ElektroFahrzeuge Schwaben GmbH (EFA-S) develops eco-friendly and highly efficient electric power-trains for passenger cars and commercial vehicles to make e-mobility affordable and profitable. This Swabian companys competitive edge is based on a combination of three factors: Extensive know-how and innovations in battery technology and battery management, use of the latest three-phase synchronous motors Retrofitting existing vehicles, making the purchase of new ones unnecessary EFA-S retrofits existing, already amortised but reliable vehicles, which mostly have engines that don`t comply with todays environmental protection regulations and have a negative impact on the companys image. As fully electrically powered vehicles they can be used in low-emission zones and promote a positive image. EFA-S retrofi ts vehicles with load capacities of up to 7.5 tonnes with electric drive-trains, irrespective of the brand or vehicle type. The list of retrofitted vehicles ranges from VW Polo to VW Transporter/Bus, or vans such as Iveco Daily and Renault Master. EFA-S vehicles are used by the greengrocer next door, who sells goods at regional markets and might even pull a two-tonne trailer, and such large enterprises as UPS. The parcel ser-vice has its traditional brown service vans of the type P80 retrofi tted by EFA-S to electric with a load capacity of 3.5 tonnes. The vehicles are used in the regions of the Swabian Alb, the Ruhr region, in Karlsruhe and Amsterdam.
