Ecomotive Solutions, a company specializing in solutions for sustainable mobility, is focusing heavily on hybrid engines, in the various mild hybrid, plug-in hybrid and full hybrid variants. There are some sectors where it is still complicated to embrace the philosophy of electricity: for example, the world of heavy vehicles and special vehicles, which have to travel along urban and extra-urban roads, feeding specific equipment with only the internal combustion engine. To date, the weight of the vehicles and the operation of the fittings still constrain the use of a diesel propulsion, the only one capable of sustaining performance and ensuring the coexistence of these vehicles in the urban context.

Heavy and special vehicles, hybrid suitable solution

Applied to this sector, the hybrid contribution makes it possible to safeguard performance and improve the environmental impact in terms of emissions and pollution. Consolidated the Diesel Dual Fuel platform, which saves less ecological diesels from scrapping by fueling them with a dynamic mixture of diesel and natural gas, the Piedmontese company of the Holdim group inaugurates a new phase in its history by facing a new challenge for application of hybrid electric technology for transport.
