Ditch the diesel: e-troFit at UITP Summit

e-troFit is an innovative retrofit solution for city buses

Diesel vehicles face a difficult future in urban areas: Due to their high emission values, many cities try to get rid of diesel vehicles. That also affects local public transport operators – consequently, the demand for electric buses is rising. However, exchanging entire fleets is an expensive endeavor.

So why not convert existing vehicles to electric drive and continue to use them sustainably? The retrofit solution e-troFit makes its international debut at the UITP Global Public Transport Summit in Stockholm. Thanks to e-troFit, conventional diesel buses turn into eco-friendly electric vehicles and make an active contribution to reducing emissions in cities.

Strong partnership with ZF Aftermarket

e-troFit is based on many years of experience in automotive development: e-troFit is a subsidiary of in-tech, a Munich-based technology company with extensive experience in the automotive industry. e-troFit can be ordered from now on, the first buses will be delivered in the 4th quarter of 2019.

With ZF Aftermarket, e-troFit has secured a strong partner for the market launch. As a system supplier, ZF supplies powertrain components for the e-troFit kit. With its global workshop network, ZF also doubles as a retrofitting and service partner.

Individual solutions

e-troFit enables individual solutions for local transport companies:  The battery capacity and range of the buses are tailored to the individual requirements of each operator on the basis of a route analysis - saving costs and weight. Conversion with e-troFit is on average 50% cheaper than an electrically powered new vehicle.
