E-Cube being delivered to fleet customers in early 2020
Having recently announced the appointment of Yorkshire based On Board Power (OBP) as a UK distributor of E-CUBE, TechnoMarketing Group (TMG) reports that it will be delivering orders into the mobile tyre sector during the early months of 2020.
Ralph Dubbeldam, managing director of TMG believes that over the next 10 years the majority of cars will be electric powered with mobile tyre servicing becoming the normal way of changing a tyre for a motorist: “If you combine this with the feeling that eventually there will be fewer cars sold which will probably lead to a steady decline in physical workshops making tyre technicians all the more likely to solely operate on a mobile basis.”
Dubbledam continued, highlighting the need for electric vehicle cranes: “Unfortunately when an electric vehicle accidentally runs out of charge it cannot be towed like a conventional petrol or diesel vehicle so it becomes stranded and needs to be lifted by a crane and taken to the nearest charging station. However, TMG are currently looking to introduce a new and completely unique add-on option for the E-CUBE, a special module that will provide a small emergency charge to enable a vehicle to reach the nearest charging point. This valuable accessory for all-electric cars looks set to become available in the first quarter of 2020.”
