Tembo 4x4 e-LV
The Toyota Land Cruiser 70-series and Toyota Hilux are the standard vehicles in the mining industry. The proven technology and the strong chassis make it an ideal base for conversions. The advantage of it’s simplicity comes at a price: the emissions of the 1HZ diesel engine are high and this creates problems for the work environment and for ventilation in underground mining.
The Tembo 4x4 e-LV Electric Cruiser and Electric HLX are the answer to this problem. No exhaust, no emissions, no problems with ventilation and all this in a well known and easy to maintain package. The Electric engine gives instant torque and enhances the driving experience. Thanks to the strong battery the car can be used for a full shift, and with fast chargers it can easily be recharged.
Testing has been done both above and below the ground, and the first series has been sold and is currently in production. Read more about it in..
