Hill start assist in electric vehicles
Why the hill holder system is useful
- Facilitates departure on slopes
- Improves driving comfort
- Increases driving safety
- It also works downhill
Greater control on slope starts
Hill Start Assist acts on slopes by stabilising the vehicle. The Hill Holder is a system that helps the driver to restart the vehicle easily while driving uphill. In the case of Alke' electric vehicles, this system works not only when driving uphill, but also when driving downhill or on level ground, and it also works when the vehicle is stationary. Once the driver presses on the accelerator, the system unlocks. It is also very useful when stopping and starting on slippery surfaces, such as gravel or ice.
Hill holder for waste collection vehicles
The Hill start assist in Alkè electric vehicles is also very useful for waste collection activities. This function facilitates all activities that require frequent stop-and-go. This is why it is particularly appreciated by waste collectors. Being able to rely on a system that stops the vehicle automatically, preventing it from rolling backwards, makes driving comfortable and less stressful. Hill start assistance is also a safety aspect that should not be underestimated, even for experienced drivers.
The electronic assisted start system is just one of the technologies used in Alke' electric vehicles. Alke work vehicles can be equipped with high-performance lithium-ion batteries and fast recharging, which can be fully recharged in just 1.5 hours. Another popular option is the fleet management cloud platform. Through this device, it is possible to have a 360° real-time overview of the fleet to improve daily operations and reduce costs. Through this system it is possible to remotely monitor the status of vehicles and carry out analyses of their performance.
