Electric Cargo Hauler

Wed Sep 14, 2011 3:06 pm

Came across this online and thought it was interesting:

Not quite the Ford Focus Electric, but nonetheless, it's an electric vehicle and is a good example of replacing a gasoline vehicle with an electric vehicle specifically built for a purpose.

It's an electric vehicle built for urban centers that pulls a train of trailers, that companies can disconnect and load/unload with packages. On the route back, the cargo hopper hauls recycled cardboard and packages sop it never runs empty.
Cargohopper is a vehicle that is able to tow 3 metric tonnes in a linear line by means of a 48 Volt 28 hp electric engine.
