BMVI presents recommended minimum standards for retrofitting commercial vehicles

Our involvement in the task force – as an innovative developer and technology leader in the retrofitting of zero-emission commercial vehicles – is paying off. Retrofitting has arrived on the market as a technologically high-quality addition to new electric vehicles – a milestone for the young retrofitting industry.

The freely available catalog of criteria creates orientation and security for purchasers of commercial vehicles and guarantees the safe and reliable use of converted commercial vehicles.

Our statement on the subject: “This is an important signal to the market and an elementary prerequisite for the use of retrofitting solutions as a technologically high-quality supplement to new electric vehicles in the market – in order to achieve the climate targets more quickly by joining forces.”

Benefit from retrofitting as a long-term, economical, and sustainable control instrument in vehicle procurement for electrified commercial vehicle fleets.

Safe, robust and reliable zero-emission vehicles

e-troFit as your partner is currently the only provider to meet all requirements of the criteria catalog in series quality!

For questions and support in the early planning of your fleet electrification and application in the two-stage funding program starting around the middle of the year, we are available at any time. Just give us a call or send us an e-mail.
