Diesel vehicles will have a hard time in the city centres in the future: Due to high emission levels, diesel vehicles are increasingly being driven out of cities. This also applies to commercial vehicles such as city buses - and the demand for electric buses from local authorities and private operators is correspondingly high.
However, exchanging entire fleets is an expensive undertaking for these operators. So why not convert existing vehicles to electric drives and continue to use them sustainably? With this vision in mind, in-tech launched the "e-troFit" pilot project at the end of 2017. The conversion solution turns conventional diesel buses into electric vehicles. The idea was born - and the pilot project now becomes a series product: at the end of the year, the first e-troFit buses will be rolling onto the road.
Subsidiary e-troFit GmbH takes over further development, sales and production
In order to bring the solution into series production, in-tech has now founded the 100% subsidiary e-troFit GmbH. The subsidiary takes over the development, series production and sales of the e-troFit solution: "From the outset, our claim during development was a professional conversion solution that is in no way inferior to a new electric vehicle," says Andreas Hager, Managing Director of the newly founded e-troFit GmbH. "With the spin-off of the project into an independent subsidiary, we are ensuring that our development and production team can continue to concentrate 100% on e-troFit". Under the e-troFit brand, the company will be appearing for the first time at the UITP Global Public Transport Summit in Stockholm.
