• ŠKODA has propitious electric draw tractors with solar panels during a categorical plant in
  Mladá Boleslav
• The use of solar appetite achieves normal annual assets of approx. 10 %
  of mains electricity
• A swift of seventeen Still R 07 electric draw tractors have been deployed by
  ŠKODA Logistics
• Over a middle term, ŠKODA aims to use choice appetite in a partial of its
  in-plant application vehicles
• Zero-emissions logistics vehicles are another stepping mill in ŠKODA´s
  GreenFuture plan of endless environmental measures

ŠKODA Logistics is heightening a use of in-plant battery-powered electric vehicles during a carmaker´s categorical plant in Mladá Boleslav. As partial of a commander project, an electric draw tractor with dual trailers was propitious with solar panels. The photovoltaic modules assign Li-ion batteries during operation. ŠKODA expects to save approx. 10 % of appetite on normal annually by regulating solar appetite in a operation of these vehicles. Photovoltaic record will be practical on a vast scale if a hearing is successful.  

The solar modules are commissioned on a roofs of a trailers and assign a traction batteries of a draw tractor, that lowers a magnitude during that a battery contingency be transposed during charging stations. A solar-powered tractor consumes approx. 10 % reduction mains electricity and also has extended continuation between charging cycles. The solar panels typically assign a batteries of a car to full ability over a weekend. The battery-powered electric draw trucks cover a stretch of roughly 70 kilometres any day in a Mladá Boleslav plant. For any day of operation, it is probable to magnitude a length of any charging cycle, a volume of appetite granted by mains electricity, and a share supposing by a solar panels. This information is invariably stored and will be processed as partial of a Green Logistics division march during a ŠKODA AUTO University.

Along with a electric draw tractor propitious with additional solar panels, there are fifteen other battery-powered electric tractors deployed in logistics during a Mladá Boleslav plant. These rigs work quite on battery appetite granted by charging stations where a battery packs are replaced. As partial of a environmental strategy, ŠKODA aims to use choice appetite sources to work a partial of a in-plant logistics car fleet. The carmaker´s prophesy for a nearby destiny is that many suppliers (in a closeness of a ŠKODA plant) will broach components to a categorical plant with application vehicles regulating choice power.

The electric expostulate descent for logistics vehicles is another stepping mill in a environmental activities of ŠKODA AUTO. These are tangible by a carmaker´s GreenFuture plan and aim several areas.  

The GreenProduct territory focuses on creation ŠKODA cars environmentally excusable during any theatre of their whole life cycle – from investigate and growth adult to environmentally accessible recycling. The elemental concentration lies with low glimmer vehicles. The code now offers 107 car variants with CO2 emissions of reduction than 120 g/km, of that 37 models grasp values next 100 g of CO2/km.

In line with a GreenFactory principle, ŠKODA is implementing countless measures to maximize apparatus charge in production. 
In a duration of 2010 to 2015, ŠKODA was means to revoke a environmental impact by 35.8 % interjection to a diminution in appetite and H2O consumption, waste, CO2 emissions, and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). Even some-more desirous environmental targets have been set in sequence to accelerate this certain trend. According to these objectives, ŠKODA will revoke a impact of a prolongation on a sourroundings by 45 % by 2018 compared to 2010, i.e. it will diminution this value by roughly one-half. The achievement of a GreenFuture plan will also be formed on environmentally optimised logistics processes, including electrically powered in-plant transport.
