THE GREEN GENERATION OF PILATO HEARSES FROM THE NEW EQ POWER HYBRID PLUG-IN RANGE HAS ARRIVED.
The new generation of Mercedes-Benz E-Class Restyling hearses can now count on EQ Power advanced hybrid plug-in technology. An extraordinary achievement that will enable the funeral sector to benefit from all the advantages of electric motorisation. The ideal opportunity for those who need to travel short distances, inside cemeteries and accessing ZTL areas, with the advantage of exemption from road tax for the early years (three or five depending on the region).
The Hybrid plug-in range fits two different engines: combustion and electric. The two forms of traction work together with extreme efficiency giving a two-fold increase in driving comfort: the electric engine for zero emission travel on urban routes and during funeral processions, the combustion unit for long distance transfers.
This technology helps to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
Here in simple terms is how the Hybrid plug-in works on the new E-Class. Energy is stored is a high-voltage lithium-ion battery that can be recharged from an external power source, even from a domestic outlet. With the regenerative braking system, kinetic energy is converted to electrical energy in order to partially recover braking energy during the release phase. The electric engine can be used both as a motor and as a generator. In the first case, it is used for traction and in the second, electric energy is recovered and used to recharge the battery during release and braking. The new hybrid plug-in engines are ready to support your business, offering both economic and sustainability benefits. Thanks to Pilato's range of incentives, our professionals will support you in choosing the hearses best suited to your operational needs.
