Electric vehicles for an environmentally friendly waste collection

Alke’ waste collection vehicles are certainly a valid answer for those organizations that aim at eco-sustainability and at reducing air and noise pollution. In this period there is much talk of smart cities that can improve the quality of urban life through activities that mainly involve the fields of mobility, the environment and energy efficiency. This is why more and more urban realities are being activated in the implementation of separate waste collection systems also with the help of low environmental impact vehicles

Key Specifications & Dimensions

AC electric motor AC motors provide very high performance while saving energy, therefore lower consumptions.
Max speed 44 km/h
Motor brake Energy recovery during the braking ensures high safety standards and perfect descent maneuverability, as well as a lowering consumptions.
Maximum Autonomy: 150 km The maximum range is indicative and evaluated over flat path with use in optimal conditions, ECO mode with proper style and energy saver guide, max speed of 30 km/h, non continuous use (batteries discharge in 5 hours).
Length: 385 cm
Width: 138 cm The small width allows to operate in restricted area.
COMBI Version The waste collection body is available also in the COMBI version (1.7 m3) in combination with the toolbox or the pressure washer.
Max negotiable slope: 35% ATX models, in their category, are probably the only electric vehicles able to maintain high performance even in presence of slopes and difficult land-types.
