Hybrid and full-electric solution for telescopic handler

The telescopic handler is one of the most interesting vehicles to be considered in the electrification process due to its size and duty cycle; at the same time, it is becoming a very attractive vehicle due to the wide range of applications from agriculture to construction equipment. Using the Carraro electrification process, the e-power team developed two different solutions suitable for hybrid and full-electric architectures on the same 6-ton telescopic handler platform. The presentation will describe how the process led to the final architecture and components design, showing the differences in terms of vehicle performance, functionalities and cost.
