Electra has concentrated its efforts to bring to market vehicles working in city centres with the highest environmental impact.
Issues of noise and exhaust emissions are utmost on the problem list of transport managers and vehicle operators.
Electra has prioritised low entry chassis units from Mercedes Benz Econic and Dennis Eagle Elite as these are commonly the chassis of choice for delivery operators in the city.
Electra has low entry chassis at up to 26t GVW, on any axle combination available to body, with battery capacity for a 250km and 9 hour PTO operation. Other special energy packs are available to customise to your operation.
Vehicles for refuse and recycling with bin lifts and compaction bodies are the most power hungry and battery demanding. Electra has Mercedes Econic and Dennis Elite based vehicles in this sector available to demonstrate.
In build we have a low entry 26t GVW fridge vehicles with underslung tail lift, a 26t builders merchant delivery truck complete with crane.
We also have a 7.5t Isuzu chassis with a dry freight box with tail lift in service and are working on a 7.5t contractors utility dropside tipper.
In addition to the new trucks under build by Electra, we also recognise the opportunity to re-power existing vehicles which may not meet future exhaust emissions legislation or city requirements for clean air.
All Electra technology and knowhow can be fitted to existing vehicles ranging from Euro 3 to the latest Euro 6 technology.
The process is simple enough, we remove the engine, gearbox, exhaust system, fuel tanks and ad blue systems and replace them with our proven technology.
Battery packs are totally custom made, allowing for short or long range operations.
All body work and power requirements can be catered for with electric drive.
Our partner, NRG Fleet Services, is the leading fleet services provider in the UK.
We have access to a 24/7 manned customer service centre and a national network of truck service workshops.
In addition there are over 20 mobile service engineers meaning you are never far from professional 24/7 support.
Electra operates from its base in Wolverhampton, where we will reposer both new and used chassis units.
