A Slovenian company, which is engaged in power electronics innovation, development, manufacture and specialized in electric vehicles and vessels components, has developed an electric driven road train. The train is a product of knowledge and experience of Slovenian experts in electro mobility. It is comprised of a towing vehicle and three trailers with an overall length of 19 m. The company is currently searching for distributors and agents.
The environmentally friendly Slovenian company which deals with power electronics innovation, development and manufacture was established in 2000.
It is divided in three departments:
- development department, where electrical systems are developed and tested,
- mechanical department, where systems are installed and tested directly on the vehicles and
- department for software development.
Their main product is a zero-emissions vehicle. It is powered by a 40 kW electric engine and can travel approximately 100 km per day (including three 12% climbs, each around 1000 m). The electric motor operates on the two-phase recovery principle where engine braking, especially while driving downhill, charges the battery cells.
It is powered by Li-ion battery. Battery standardly charges for 12 hours. Max. install power is 6 kW, the top speed of the train is 25 km/h. All axles on the trailers are guided.
The train is comprised of a towing vehicle and three trailers with an overall length of 19 m. It can take on board 47 passengers, a person in a wheelchair and there is also an additional seat for a tour guide. In winter the trailers are closed and have heating, while in the summer the windows can be opened. The trailers with wooden chairs are equipped like city buses. The train also has video and audio equipment as well as 12 photovoltaic panels on its roof, which help maintain its electric energy while driving.
The electric road train is already in service in Slovenian capital city.
The company is already involved in some international collaboration but would like to expand its distribution network and is ready to customize the offered product and adapt it to special needs of the client if requested.
The product should be interesting for cities with bigger pedestrian zones, tourist resorts, national parks, heritage sites etc.
The company is looking for distributors and agents. Distributors and agents are expected to have strong marketing and sales connections within tourist sector and local authorities and preferably some experience with electric vehicles.
Distributors should be able to work under a distribution agreement to provide sales and delivery, and after-sales services such as simple maintenance works and warranties.
Agents should be able to sell in specific markets and to develop local sales’ network in case of bigger countries.
The train offers a number of advantages to current technology:
1. It is powered by clean energy (zero emissions)
2. The electric motor operates on the two-phase recovery principle where engine braking charges the battery cells
3. All axles on the trailers are guided.
In case of potential distributors, the company wishes to sign distribution service agreement with those having established good connection in tourist sector and local authorites. It might be either large or small distributor, preferably with some experience in electric vehicles.
In case of potential agents, the company wishes to sign commercial agency agreement with agents interested to introduce this product on their respective markets, with possibilty to develop local sales network.
