Test drives of the electric fire engine took place in Arizona. The video from the tests was posted on YouTube. Judging by the video, the novelty called Rosenbauer looks more like a bus with a futuristic design. According to Carscoops, the price of the car is about $ 1 million. At the same time, the price of an ordinary fire engine is about 700 thousand dollars.
Rosenbauer is equipped with two Volvo electric motors with a combined power of 490 hp. and 50,000 Nm of torque. Also, the car is equipped with a diesel unit with a return of 272 hp, which acts as a generator for recharging batteries.
You can also charge the car from a regular network. In addition, with the help of a special system, Rosenbauer itself becomes a power source. Thus, all kinds of gadgets and fire-fighting equipment can be recharged from the car. At the moment, such fire trucks have entered the rescue service fleets in Amsterdam and Berlin.
Prior to that, electric cars mainly entered the service of police car fleets around the world. For example, Tesla’s first green pickup truck, the Cybertruck, will soon go to Dubai’s law enforcement agencies. Police in the US drive Tesla Model S.
