In recent years, electrically driven, battery-powered lorries have become increasingly popular and widespread in special fields of freight transportation. Despite the fact that electric lorries may not become competitors for their counterparts with combustion engines in many areas, but in some special fields they may absolutely offer competitive solutions. The advantages are obvious: no exhaust fume, lower noise load, environmentally-friendly technology and extremely low operating costs, just to mention the most important factors. In the case of special tasks – transportation in closed areas, protected downtown areas, near main touristic attractions, in parks or zoos – electric lorries with zero emission obviously have competitive advantage.
PRACTICALLY ZERO EMISSION
It is not only that electric lorries practically have zero emission, which is an issue central to environmental awareness. Furthermore, the “lack” of exhaust fumes enhances user experience, makes the electric lorries and freight transport vehicles health-friendly solutions, and allows their use in protected downtown or closed areas as well as in warehouses and logistics centres. In addition to the above, it is another advantage that electric vehicles produce a minimum level of noise.
The electric lorries of Birdiecar offer competitive solutions in their category. Passenger transportation for two people in public road traffic, a range of up to 100 km, a speed of 40km/h and low investment costs, just to mention the most important parameters. The load capacity of the different models of Birdiecar lorries may vary from 800 to 2000 kg.
LOW OPERATING COSTS
Electric lorries and freight transport vehicles in general and those of Birdiecar in particular may be operated at affordable cost levels. Energy costs for 100 kilometres are approximately HUF 300, which is incomparable to the operating costs of their regular counterparts with combustion engines. Recharging electric lorries causes no problem today. The batteries of Birdiecar lorries may be easily recharged by using a battery charger at the company’s premises, or by plugging the on-board charger of the vehicle to any 230V socket .
