Designed for electric – designed for safety
Safety is in our heart, and we design our trucks from a blank sheet of paper to be the safest commercial vehicles for one simple reason: Transport for London’s own statistics show that 20% of pedestrian fatalities and 78% of cyclist deaths involve an HGV, yet large trucks only account for 4% of road miles. This is clearly unacceptable. The removal of the internal combustion engine enabled our designers and engineers to completely reimagine conventional truck design principles.
The driver has a wide 220-degrees of direct vision around the vehicle. This panoramic view of the surroundings through a glasshouse-style cab delivers a Transport for London five-star Direct Vision Standard rating for optimum visibility. The driver sits in a low and central position, eliminating blind spots, and mirroring the eye-line of nearby pedestrians and other road users for easy visual communication.
The central seating position also aids driver entry and exit, with a low step height allowing safe and easy access through fast-opening sliding
doors, directly onto the pavement and never the busy carriageway.
Driver comfort has been optimized by minimising cognitive overload. The cabin is contemporary, spacious and light, with intuitive user interfaces. We are designing a premium experience and workspace for drivers, encouraging recruitment and retention for fleet operators.
