Here is BMW’s First 40-ton electric truck for transport on city roads
BMW Group has partnered with the logistic company to implement a group scherm 40 tons pure electric truck in the city this summer and become the first auto-maker in Germany using an electric truck of this size for transporting materials public roads.
The vehicle’s innovative drive, which is licensed for use on public roads, will be implemented starting this summer to transport just in time for short distances materials. The electric truck drive between scherm Group logistics company and BMW Plant Munich Group eight times a day, covering a distance of nearly two kilometers one way. Thanks to its alternative transmission train, the bus is quiet, CO2 free traffic and generates virtually no particle pollution to the environment. This is also reflected in the overall assessment of the vehicle compared to a truck with diesel engine: The green lorry generate 11.8 tons less CO2 per year – equivalent to a BMW 320d Efficient Dynamics to drive nearly three times around the world.
“Little less than two years ago, our brand BMW i put sustainable mobility in the road. This signals pure electric trucks that are constantly working on innovative solutions that address logistical challenges,” says Hermann Bohrer, head of the BMW plant Group of Munich. “Therefore, we are pleased with the cooperation with scherm.”
