Schaltag for E-FORCE ONE AG: Production of the Complete Battery Module for the First 18-Ton All-Electric Truck in the World.

E FORCE ONE manufactures the first purely battery-powered electric 18-ton truck at Fehraltorf (Zurich). In collaboration with competent and innovative project partners, and after less than two years in development, it was able to introduce a commercially viable product to the market.

This innovative commercial vehicle boasts a range of up to 350 kilometres, and is both quiet and emission-free when travelling in regional commercial traffic. In addition to low energy consumption, low maintenance and repair costs and the elimination of taxes and duties, there are a number of other significant benefits.

Schaltag makes two lithium-iron phosphate-battery modules with a total capacity of 240 kWh for every electric truck. Each battery module consists of two frames arranged one above the other, and each is equipped with 60 rechargeable battery cells. Additional strands, cables and monitoring devices are assembled mechanically. Special attention should be drawn to the quality, the precise traceability and the special precautionary measures for work within a direct voltage range of several hundred volts.

The customer appreciates Schaltag’s wealth of experience as an established company, and its high level of competence in the field of industrial electromechanics manufacturing. The customer also benefits from:

  • Inspiring and straightforward collaboration, from the development stage onwards
  • A strong outsourcing partner with flexible capacity in the event of production and logistics bottlenecks
