The first Russian electric heavy-duty truck Moskva, together with a charging station, was handed over to the Magnit retail chain for trial use. The car was created by Drive Electro, which previously developed batteries for Moscow electric buses. The design of the truck fully complies with the requirements of “Magnet”.
The creators note that the car is adapted to our climate and has a minimum noise level, which is designed to increase comfort in the city. According to experts from Magnit, one such electric car could help reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 87 tons per year. The manufacturer, in turn, assures that within 10 years the cost of ownership of these electric trucks (including maintenance and charging station) will be 20-25% lower than that of conventional trucks due to the longer life of the main components.
The Moskva is based on the KAMAZ chassis, and the power plant boasts a capacity of 229 kW (312 horsepower) and a torque of 1400 Nm. The total capacity of the batteries is 140 kWh. The length of the truck is almost 9 meters, the unladen weight of the Moskva electric vehicle is similar to that of a diesel truck of the same class – about 10 tons, and it can carry up to 9 tons more.
The car is capable of reaching a maximum speed of 110 km / h, and its range is 200 km. The manufacturer says that this is one of the highest rates in the world in this class. This is enough for Magnit: 40% of the chain’s stores in Russia are located within 80 km of distribution centers. Today Magnit operates about 600 stores of various formats in Moscow alone.
There are two charging modes available for the electric truck: fast charging for 20 minutes and overnight charging for 8 hours. The truck can replenish energy from a conventional industrial network with a voltage of 380 V. It is also worth noting that the car has an isothermal container, is equipped with a refrigeration unit for storing food and a tail lift with a carrying capacity of 1.5 tons.
Magnit intends to test the truck within 6-12 months, delivering products from the company’s distribution center in Dmitrov to stores throughout Moscow. If the tests are successful, the company will buy more of these trucks in this configuration: the initial batch can be up to 200 vehicles.
Magnit’s infrastructure now includes, in addition to stores, 38 distribution centers and more than 5,000 of its own trucks. The company has also started using LNG vehicles and plans to convert up to 250 LNG vehicles by the end of the year.
