Europe‘s first fully-equipped electrically-driven fire-fighting vehicle

The public company Linz AG has developed it together with the fire brigade supplier Rosenbauer International and the high-performance e-battery producer Kreisel Electric. The electrically-driven fire-fighting vehicle is powered by four batteries with a total capacity of 86 kWh and an electric engine with a durable performance of 120 kilowatts. In spite of the heavy weight of the batteries totaling 600 kilograms, the entire vehicle with a crew of up to six people should have a range of 160 kilometers. 90 percent of battery capacity should be available within a period of 80 minutes thanks to a quick recharging station. With an expected mileage of 12,000 kilometers annually, the vehicle should be less expensive to operate and also save 4.8 tons of carbon dioxide.

The positive coverage mainly deals with activities and announcements about electric cars. The level of attention should not be surprising. The bottom line is that most of us use our own vehicles on a daily basis, and the global market is huge, consisting of 80 million new automobiles.
