In a mountain village with an Alke vehicle
What determined the choice of the Alke electric vehicle
- High performance even on and off-road
- High load capacity: up to 1630 kg (chassis)
- 100% electric: ecological and silent
- Extremely compact: only 140 cm wide
An environmentally friendly and quiet vehicle ideal for mountain use
An Alke electric vehicle was purchased by the owner of a rural accommodation in Bulnes, Spain. This is one of the most remote villages in Spain and until 2001, when the funicular was built, it was only accessible on foot via a footpath that took at least two hours to walk. During the test days it was investigated whether the vehicle could enter the funicular and reach the rural accommodation loaded with supplies of up to 700 kg. The test was passed brilliantly. The customer is thrilled to be able to rely on an environmentally friendly and quiet vehicle in such an unspoilt location.
Mountain freight and passenger transport
The requirements to be met by the Alke electric vehicle were many. A compact vehicle was needed, both to enter the funicular and to pass through the paths of the mountain village. Another need was the high load capacity required for the vehicle to transport goods to the accommodation. There was also the need to transport accommodation guests from the funicular to the B&B. All this in a mountain village with climbs and off-road roads. The Alke' vehicle responded with flying colours to all these needs, with the added bonus of being totally electric, and therefore ecological and silent. In an environment like this, this is certainly a feature not to be underestimated.
Main characteristics of Alkè electric vehicles
Alke electric vehicles are professional transport vehicles, 100% made in Italy, designed for use in the toughest and most demanding conditions. They have a load capacity of up to 1,630 kg at chassis and a towing capacity of up to 4,500 kg (in a private area). Autonomy is up to 200 km with lithium batteries. They are all homologated for road use but have high performance off-road as well. They are extremely customisable vehicles, with hundreds of fittings and accessories to choose from.
