Webasto & Green-G: Electric Kleesslaster Ecarry-webasto

The vehicle manufacturer Green-G wants to provide with the emission-free Ecarry for a lower pollution burden in urban areas. The supplier company Webasto supports the Italians with its battery and air conditioning technology. Green-G, a young subsidiary of Italian Gorizian Holding, focuses on the development of electric vehicles and systems in times of climate change and sustainability. With the fully electric Kleesslaster Ecarry, Green-G is now celebrating premiere in the market of municipal vehicles.

The ECARRY was designed to be a recent communication specifically for service companies active in the urban environment. Suitable applications are Z.B. Disposal services, horticulture, urban logistics and deliveries in the area of the last mile. The vehicle has about the dimensions of a conventional pickup transporter and therefore easily maneuver. It has a N1 road legal, weighs a maximum of 3.5 tons and reaches a speed of up to 80 kilometers per hour – completely sufficient for the urban environment. The standard version of the Ecarry is equipped with a lithium-nickel manganese cobalt battery of Webasto with 35 kilowatt hours. The premium variant is powered by two batteries with a total output of 70 kilowatt hours. Depending on whether one or two batteries are installed, the municipal vehicle can cover up to 250 kilometers without being charged.

Also in the internal air conditioning of the Kleinlasters Green-G relies on technology from Webasto. In order to heat the interior of the vehicle, an electrical high volume is used. He converts direct current almost lossless to heat. A climate system integrated in the vehicle ensures the necessary cooling in the interior of the Ecarry. Since all thermal management functions (heating and cooling) usually consume a lot of energy, the engineers of Webasto have developed a special control strategy for the Ecarry, which is adapted to the external weather conditions. To round off the air conditioning in the Ecarry, a control unit is used. It regulates all HVAC devices (fans, blower, coolant pump and high-voltage devices) according to the currently required operating mode.

With the Ecarry, the two companies want to help reduce the pollution burden and noise in the fields of application of municipal vehicles. The Ecarry should only be the beginning. Other electrical vehicles should follow. “We want to enrich the world with innovative technological solutions that are consistent with ecological sustainability. We have a partner for the batteries and thermal management at our side, which convinces us with high quality of products and services, “explains Alessandro Della Torre, project manager at Green-G. Webasto wants to continue to support the Italian company on its way.

“We are pleased to accompany Green-G with our products and the associated service packages on their way. The findings that we win through the integration of our products in the Ecarry are also directly influenced as market requirements in product developments. The cooperation gives us the opportunity to continue to grow in the market of inner-city distribution and municipal traffic in the e-mobility “, says Manuel Kagelmann, Head of Product Management Batteries in Customized Solutions at Webasto.

  1. That fits very well with a 35 kW battery ..
    At normal payload to 500kg, this could fit for the municipalities ..
    There is probably a realistic range of 100-150 km in summer ..

    If you think further that the urban staff will sometime be charging their deciduous blanks and lawn trimmer or other tools, the 35kW no longer ..

    Why do not the whole developers think so far?
    I know so far only one company that has developed 5-10 years more looking for ..
    Pity actually ..

    Nevertheless, a good approach and with the next generations of batteries will do a lot and it will also be possible.

    It remains exciting

  2. Hmmm … high-volume heating … why no heat pump with much better efficiency?
    And a pity that no cobalt-free battery is used.

    But otherwise one can only hope that the project has success and frivals the municipalities.
    There may be a deployment as a device carrier for sale: salt shaker and snow relief (the morning quiet through the snowy roads tailored), broom … but maybe that’s still.
    And as already called charging power supply for electric handholders, also lawnmower u.a.. – That’s actually obvious, also for craftsmen and horticulture / care.

  3. I am an entrepreneur and have been working for a long way to acquire a suitable vehicle as shown. I do not need high tech vehicle, no air conditioning and the power steering I have in the arm muscles.
    100 km range, 1200 kg payload, 80 km maximum speed, as little airbags, favorable price.
    Which company is interested in selling me such a work vehicle? I am convulsive. Either the vehicles only come to the market in years, or one explains that my ideas are quite justified and make sense. But is produced, if at all, exactly the opposite.
    So a battery must be loaded slowly so that it holds long and does not have to be cooled during the charging process, which in turn is not ecological. Incidentally, the same applies to the mobile phone.
    All speeches from environmental protection, ecology, renewable energy and strive to do exactly the opposite.

    Where can I find a provider that could sell me such a vehicle in the next few months?
