As the city of Utrecht in the Netherlands has decreased the pollution in the historic center with the use of Alke's solar powered electric delivery van - electric trucks for transport.
|Electric trucks for transport - Alke
||Solar powered electric delivery van
Alke electric vehicles for the project CargoHopper are able to tow up to 3 ton thanks to a separate excitation motor with a power of 6kW and peak of 20kW, with forced cooling for work in the most demanding conditions.
This solar powered vehicle is unique because it is a very good value for the city of Utrecht's business center. For this reason it is having a big success in professional sector where this kind of vehicle have duble price compared with that of ATX E. Its maximum speed in this configuration is 20 km/h (but it may vary up to 33 km/h following customer requirements), but it is more than enought because this vehicle is used inside the historic center of Utrecht city and has a maximum autonomy of 60km per day.
The electric delivery van continues with deliveries to shops inside historic center and pedestrian area. Once empty, it collects from shops dry waste, in particular paperboard, paper and empty packagings, for recycling in order to take advantage from the homeward journey.
In this way, with Alke' electric delivery van you reduce up to 100.000 kilometers of diesel and petrol vehicles inside city center and you save annually around 30 tons of CO2.
The three trailers are driven on both axles which gives to the vehicle a great manoeuvrability.
It is a completely ecologic vehicle. This Alke' vehicle is designed for the delivery of packages and is able, in a working day, to do the work of 5 to 8 standard vans in areas where this kind of vehicles are not allowed to pass.
|Engine||Electric||SEM excitation on electric vehicles allows greater performance and energy saving and therefore lower consumption.|
|Maximum speed||33Km/h||The reduced mode allows to make the most of the available torque and greater driving control.|
|Engine brake||Yes||The engine brake with energy recovery ensures high safety standards and perfect descent manoeuvrability, as well as lowering consumption.|
|Autonomy||60-90Km||Depending on customer requirements and configuration.|
|Loading capacity||500-1000Kg||Depends on the chosen model: ATX 100E - ATX 200E - ATX 280E|
|Width||127cm||The small width allows to operate in restricted areas.|
|Power||6KW||Available power and torque are really for professional and intensive use.|
|Max. power separate excitation||17,5 - 20KW||It is max power to face most demanding slopes and towing jobs.|
|Negotiable slope||30%||40% with HP25 kit: The ATX are probably the only electric vehicles in their category to keep up high performance even in the presence of slopes and difficult land-types.|
|Regenerative brake||Yes||The energy recovery mechanism of the Alke's electric vehicles reduces battery consumption.|
|The three containers, are separate boxes that can be put on and of the undercarriages using a forklift. 8 of those boxes fit on a trailer of 13.60 meters. Containers are loaded outside the historic center in a distribution centre and towed into the pedestrian zone with Alke' electric delivery van.
In city centers, industries, railways, airports for the parcel delivery to stores and the collection of packaging and paper.
