Why electric?

The duty-cycle for refuse collection vehicles is ideal for an electric driveline. With regular known routes, low-running speed and numerous stop-starts for much of the working day, electric vehicles will also provide operational and environmental benefits, including, reduced noise, zero emissions and reduced maintenance costs.

To ensure the best possible range and performance, the fatigue resistance and durability of the chassis were extensively tested, both in the simulation laboratory and on the extremely rough Millbrook test track in the UK.
