elZEBRA cooperation with MGM COMPRO

Development of ZEBRA electric utility vehicles

In recent months, our engineers have been working intensively on the development of the first Czech electric utility vehicle – named elZebra – which is being developed by the Zebra Group based in Pardubice, Czech Republic.

Recent years and decades have brought a significant interest increase in the cultivation and maintenance of public space, and it is this fact that Czech start-up Zebra Group took advantage of. The company has set the goal of becoming a carmaker specializing in utility vehicles for a wide range of applications, from the cleaning of roads, through winter maintenance, to even the service of industrial areas.

ZEBRA: SUCCESSFUL COMMERCIAL VEHICLES WITH GREAT UTILITY

After six years on the market, Zebra Group cars are supplied to the market for a great number of construction companies, municipalities and technical services, thanks to constant development and improvement. It was this desire to move forward that inspired the company to design a new – purely electric – model elZebra. It was announced at the end of 2018 and entered the market in August this year.

The electric car can be driven with a passenger car driver’s license and in addition to the natural benefits of the electric motor, such as zero emissions and the absence of noise, it also has many other key features. Probably the most surprising of them is the price – being comparable to the diesel version and in combination with the much lower maintenance costs makes the elZebra not only a more environmentally friendly but also a more economical version. A very pleasant benefit is also the long battery life: the largest battery system has a capacity of 64.5 kWh and thus brings a trouble-free range for the entire usual 8.5-hour shift.

MGM COMPRO HELPED BY TUNING OF THE PROPULSION UNIT

The MGM COMPRO team has a long history in support of electrical conversion in many industries, so we did not hesitate when Zebra asked us to cooperate. Our teams worked together to supply and integrate our speed controllers. We then also helped to fine-tune the entire system, especially in the area concerning the propulsion unit, which is essential for the entire car’s operation.

However, the whole project is merely on square one – Zebra Group recently announced the development of a 4×4 version, having these two electric motors also on the front axle. This project will continue to be a great challenge for our engineers and our entire team will be happy to further participate.
