The Swiss electromobility specialist Designwerk Technologies AG is expanding further north. Designwerk is now offering its electric commercial vehicles in the Benelux countries. The portfolio includes the full range in the e-truck sector from 18 to 50 ton trucks with battery capacities between 375 and 1000 kilowatt hours.
According to a 2022 Forbes study, Luxembourg and the Netherlands rank among the top 10 most e-car friendly countries in the world. In particular, the well-developed charging infrastructure and road quality lead to a high share of new electric vehicle registrations. Belgium also has a high share of e-car sales.
“We see great market potential in the Benelux for Designwerk E-Trucks due to the high level of technology in combination with the positive social and political environment. One example: The Netherlands is continuously investing in the energy transition and thus accelerating brand developments. The dense and publicly accessible charging station network is a result of these investments,” says Thomas Rücker, Head of E-Truck Sales and Aftersales at Designwerk Technologies AG.
Strong overall e-truck portfolio right from the start
After the successful market entry in Germany in 2021, Designwerk is now expanding its team for the Benelux market. Sales and e-mobility expert Julian Rottier is driving the local expansion of the Winterthur-based e-mobility specialist.
As in Switzerland and Germany, the complete electric truck portfolio – from dump trucks and low-floor vehicles to heavy haulers – is available to customers in the Benelux. Customers can choose from 18- to 50-ton trucks with battery capacities ranging from 375 to 1000 kilowatt hours.
Thomas Rücker draws an initial positive balance: “As a specialist for customized solutions, Designwerk is an attractive partner for customers with individual technology requirements. We are experiencing high demand for our solutions with the highest ranges thanks to the world’s largest battery capacities and expertise in complex superstructures and auxiliary drives.”
