In recent years, electrically driven, battery-powered small cargo vehicles have become increasingly popular and widespread in special fields of freight/passenger transportation. The advantages are obvious: no exhaust fume, higher passenger comfort, 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 small cargo vehicles with zero emission obviously have competitive advantage. The special characteristic of small cargo vehicles is that they may be used to perform both passenger and freight transportation tasks.
PRACTICALLY ZERO EMISSION
Electric small cargo vehicles practically have zero emission, which is an issue central to environmental awareness. Furthermore, the “lack” of exhaust fumes enhances user experience, makes the electric small cargo 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 small cargo vehicles produce a minimum level of noise.
The electric small cargo vehicles of Birdiecar offer competitive solutions in their category. Passenger transportation for up to four people even 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 Birdiecar small cargo models may vary from 300 to 450 kg .
LOW OPERATING COSTS
Electric small cargo 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 small cargo lorries causes no problem today. The batteries of Birdiecar small cargo vehicles 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.
