Sustainable on the Way

SAF-HOLLAND replaces two diesel vehicles by three eco-friendly, quiet and space-saving electric cars from the series „smart fortwo electric drive vehicles“. A clean alternative, which is also extremely useful for the local transport sector.

With the aim of a more environmentally friendly handling of the traffic between the plants, city driving or trips in the region, the “little one” has convinced in the selection of vehicles with electric motor across the board.

This car seems almost perfect for the short distance and urban area with a range of 160 km. A small turning circle and compact external dimensions of just 2.70 m in length and 1.70 m in width make finding a parking space extremely easy as well.

But the biggest advantage is of course in the electric motor. Because the three-phase synchronous motor ensures that the eSmart emits no CO2 during its use in the next few years and, moreover, runs very quietly from factory to factory.

According to Gerhard Rosenzweig, Fleet Manager of SAF-HOLLAND, the purchase of the three eSmarts fortwo is just the beginning. More electric cars are already planned for the coming year. They will then be from the series “smart forfour electric drive”.
