Vehicles – electric, connected and autonomous
The future of the mobility is electric, connected and autonomous. Therefore, electric mobility and especially electric commercial vehicles will play an important in this development.
They are a key factor in the transition process from a niche to a mass market. Fleet operators add new vehicles to their fleets because they realize that electric vehicles come with significantly lower total costs of ownerships than fossil vehicles. The currently higher costs of purchase are more than compensated by lower maintenance costs. For urban areas they will be indispensable in the medium-term, because more and more local authorities are forced to reduce emissions and will therefore ban vehicles with combustion engines from their streets. With the increasing connectivity between the vehicles and between the vehicles and their physical and digital environment as well as automated and eventually autonomous driving will enable traffic authorities to manage urban traffic much smarter and to use the limited space of especially urban areas much more efficiently.
Manufacturers like EMOSS from the Netherlands, the award-winning transporters NISSAN eNV200 as well as the DHL subsidiary StreetScooter’s multi-purpose transporter „Work“, the Swiss manufacturer Bucher Municipal with an electric road sweeper, emovum from Hamburg with their 3 way discharge skipper or the Hungarian company evopro, that has developed a fully electric, modular structured bus for urban transportation, have shown where EVs can be used comprehensively today.
