All-electric mini-truck made in Bulgaria will compete with the German market –

Bulgarian mini electric truck? It is no longer a dream, but a reality, assembled with components developed and manufactured in this country. The first Bulgarian electric mini-truck was officially presented in Sofia. A die novelties is the use of photovoltaic panels in the body, which can recharge the battery up to 20% in sunny weather. Only with the help of solar energy, the car can travel up to 50 kilometers per day. A curious fact is that the vehicle can be driven even via a smart phone. This vehicle is perfectly suited to urban conditions. It has two seats and its maximum distance per battery charge is 250 kilometers, while the maximum speed reaches 80 km / h. The innovative truck was presented at the Geneva International Motor Show last year.

The vehicle was developed by the company of Bulgarian entrepreneur Rosen Daskalov. Founded in 2012, it was known for the production of sports cars, but now focuses on other prototypes, such as the electric van, an electric car for educational purposes, which can be driven by children, buses, etc.

Due to the problems caused by the pandemic and the strict restrictions in the production of diesel cars in Germany, the manufacturer plans to move its assembly and distribution there. According to Daskalov, the auto giants are currently releasing many engineers and other experts in the field of the auto industry, which could be beneficial for the Bulgarian company. The contractor’s plans for the production of the mini-truck reach a level of 20,000 units per year over the next 5 years. / BNR
