40-tonne electric reefer truck

Swiss Pistor AG group, a supply of foodstuffs and preserves, has started operating a fully-electric 40 tonne refrigerated HGV for use in Central Switzerland. The 40T truck has been developed together with the E-Force One AG, a pacemaker in the industry, which has already developed smaller 11 and 18 tonners in use with Pistor and other shippers such as Feldschlösschen and Coop.

The trucks use electric energy based on Swiss water craft drives and operate quietly with practically zero emissions. The new truck will be used as a 26 tonner supplying bakeries, confectioners, restaurants, hotels in the Zurich area.
