This battery electric offering has been designed to deliver a smooth and emission free ride.
Packaged into the existing B5 chassis is Equipmake’s advanced propulsion technology; the HTM 3500 motor combines high torque with low motor speeds, and is fitted directly onto the propshaft negating the need for a separate gearbox.
The unit produces maximum torque of 3,500Nm at just 1,000rpm and offers maximum power of 400kW. It is driven by a Semikron SKAI inverter with energy stored in a 434kWh lithium-ion battery pack – enough for a range of up to 200 miles on a single charge, enabling more than enough daily operating mileage.
EVR-B5 efficiency is made possible by one of the most efficient thermal management systems on the market, which keeps the motor, inverter and battery at optimum operating temperature, featuring a water-glycol cooling circuit augmented by the capture of thermal energy to heat the interior in cold conditions.
When the battery is depleted it can be simply recharged at the depot overnight using a CSS DC charging point.
