The drive train of the new logistics vehicle consists of a compact electric motor and a 2-speed gearbox, the first gear of which allows starting with maximum torque (425 Nm) even on steep terrain. The output of the electric motor is 165 kW (continuous output) and reaches a peak of up to 200 kW. The motor also acts as a generator, converting the kinetic energy that is normally lost when braking into electrical energy and feeding it back to the traction batteries. Up to six 600 V batteries (lithium-nickel-manganese-cobalt accumulators) with a capacity of 50 kWh each can be installed in the chassis and provide a range of around 300 km. They are charged either via the on-board chargers with alternating current or at external direct current charging stations.
