From the outset, e-troFit’s goal was to offer a professional solution that is no less than a new electric bus. The company also offers the cheapest way to run an electric bus with shorter delivery times and significantly reduced operating costs.
An electric bus of the same quality as a new one
e-troFit is a subsidiary of the in-tech company. Since 2016 at in-tech, a team dedicated to innovation has been working on the subject of electric mobility. Since then, the growing demand for electric buses has made its way into cities in particular. To meet this demand, the question of converting these vehicles to electric power in order to be able to continue to use them in a sustainable way has obviously arisen. And e-troFit was born.
Andreas Hager, Managing Director of e-troFit explains: “Right from the design phase, our goal was to offer a professional solution that is in no way inferior to that of a new electric bus. e-troFit is the cheapest way to achieve electromobility with shorter delivery times.“
Equipping operators with more economical electric buses
The demand for electric mobility for public transport is growing strongly in Germany. Many operators now want to convert their city buses to electric buses. The first observation is that investment in new vehicles is still very heavy, and not really “sustainable”.
The electric conversion of existing fleets is the only intelligent alternative. e-troFit®, therefore, proposes to convert electric buses as well as diesel trucks with an innovation that has already won several prizes.
The result? Almost new buses for 50% less than buying a new thermal version. With lower energy costs and lower maintenance costs.
Electrical retrofit with modular batteries
e-troFit offers an electrical retrofit solution tailored to the specific needs of its customers. By analyzing the type of routes and distances covered, they determine as accurately as possible, the autonomy requirements and the number of battery modules to be installed. This avoids additional costs and overloading of the buses.
Going to a festival on board a retrofitted electric bus!
The vast majority of a festival’s CO2 emissions are produced with the arrival and departure of visitors. Reason enough for the Stereo Strand festival team in Bavaria to ask festival-goers to travel zero-emission.
The theme of environmental protection is at the heart of the festival’s concerns. From organising a festival that is as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible, to music that runs 100% on green electricity. The use of electric buses was a matter of course.
The festival has therefore entered into a partnership with e-troFit to drive festival-goers in free, electric and retrofitted shuttles!
