In Germany, began to collect electric "Gazelle"

In Germany, sales of the electric version of the GAZelle Next car started. The modernization of Russian trucks is carried out by EFA-S, based in Stuttgart, Germany.

The assembly of electric "GAZelle" in Germany began this year. EFA-S buys cars in Russia without a transmission, engine and fuel system. Then, already in Stuttgart, electric motors and batteries are installed on them.

Currently, 4 versions of the upgraded car are available for purchase: E35 (cargo truck), E35V (all-metal van), E35D (two-cab version) and E35B (minibus). Regardless of the version, all electric "GAZelle Next" received a 110-kilowatt engine (approximately 150 hp). The maximum speed of the car is limited to 88 km / h.

Recall that the serial production of GAZelle of a new generation by the Gorky Automobile Plant began in 2013. The car received a number of advantages compared to the previous version. In particular, the Next model boasts a new gearbox with a “joystick” shift, rack and pinion steering with power steering, an updated (independent front) suspension and a new generation cab.

            It’s not a matter of complexity ... A vicious circle has formed in Russia: people don’t buy electric cars because there are no charging stations, and they, in turn, don’t install them, because there are few electric cars. In the West, the situation is somewhat different. There, the state allocates free land for electric refueling and exempts the organizers of VAT from VAT ...

      Hello garage. wink
      It seems that GAZ decided to invest in Germany and it is possible to get the necessary technology, as well as access to the western consumer. This company so far looks more like a large garage, where they re-equip cars of various brands with an electric drive. We will observe how much they manage to increase their production capacities in the next three or four years and in which direction the new electric gazelles will jump.
