Resistance is futile???
Germany has been assimilated by the Borg Collective. Surprised - NOT.
What nex frome Germany the fully electric panzer
Probably make Concorda & Morel's look like a bargin.
Of Course you'd remember those days Dave
Due to very recent battery imrovements
It's reported Payload has been increased to 1lb 3.1/2oz
Batteries are heavy, but then so is 100L of diesel, a compression engine, exhaust etc, and we won't need leisure batteries. Payload could go up
Gonna be a hell of a lot of people out of a job!! The electric drive train won’t take that amount of slack up in the jobs market.
Not a prayer Jim 2lb at a push
More chance of you winning the Christmas Auction
Well "Maurer Fahrzeugbau to make the e-camper’s bodywork" this won't make it the cheapest in the world IMO,
Anybody who doesn't know Maurer check here http://www.maurer-swiss.ch
This might look like a Sprinter coach built/PVC until you realise that the whole front end is wider than a Sprinter the sides are subtly curved and it is all made of fibreglass, they have taken the original cab bodywork and stretched it and integrated it with the rear body and then made moulds, a lot of work for something that doesn't look much different to the original, I had a good look at them at Dusseldorf
Be the ideal van to tour Morocco it i should think, BUSBY
Hi, I've never really agreed with the environmental benefits of an electric vehicle compared to fossil fueled ones, they're just different. In my opinion what is gained in local air quality, is lost to the environmental cost in the production of the batteries (usually in poorer parts of the world).
Lets be realistic, the mining industries of the world have never been known for being green friendly. How can digging up thousands of tonnes of the earth's crust or pumping millions of litres of water underground to extract a few grams of rare earth minerals be considered an environmental benefit.
The article below gives sober reading.
Loaded with milk you would have been lucky for 20 to 30 miles
You would think it would have a full integrated solar roof system so you can change on the move?
Back when I was a youth I used to build the things !
You forgot the sun shining daily in winter. living around farms it always stinks & the flies have nearly died out at last.
in the winter it smells of Almond blossom,,BUSBY.
Maybe Geo but you must remember the days when there was only horses pulling carts around, what with being older than me and all
Thats what surprises me about spain, they seem to have solar farms and windfarms all over the place yet they re still short of power.
There is a bit of a conundrum here though:
The government cannot afford to lose the 'green' taxes from us needing to use vehicle to go about our business.
Its politically difficult to come up with a new reason to tax electric cars and still get people to buy them.
Given the above people no longer want fossil fuelled power stations, Nuclear scares the sh*t out of them, nobody wants the country covered in wind turbines and the weather isnt good enough to rely on solar.
Its looks very nice but its nuts that a truck with a V10 IC engine is considered 'clean'.
A bit like pellet boilers!!
