The climate targets have been set and CO2 emissions must be drastically reduced. Freight transport has a significant role and has to adapt.

Electromobility is very promising to reach zero-emission in freight transport, also in the truck sector. The first thought usually goes to new vehicles, and this is where we come in.

The conversion solutions from pepper are not only more sustainable, but also considerably more economical than the purchase of a new vehicle. We offer ready converted trucks as well as the conversion of existing vehicles.

Switch from diesel to electric. Make yourself independent from fossil fuels. Take the more environmentally friendly and economically sensible route.

Why retrofit? Why pepper?
