The Eternal Cycle: Quiet Waste Recolection, Then-today-tomorrow

The new waste collection vehicle of the German company Quantron AG was successfully tested - it was in operation without any restrictions, just like other models with diesel engines, with a daily 7 to 9 hour collection tour for distances of up to 85 kilometres. There was always sufficient residual energy available, and for recharging it only needed a 63A three-phase house connection with continuous load. The electric and therefore quiet rubbish truck is no longer a utopia; supply and demand are increasing and in the near future the nightly disposal of our affluent rubbish will be quiet.
The idea is not new, but the technology has never been as good as it is today. As early as 1909 the…

The Visitor: Trimak, The Van Financed By Rockefeller

At the beginning of the sixties, the Spanish company Trimak was looking for financing to launch its three-wheeler van into large-scale production. It found the necessary money through two foreign companies, International Basic Economy Corporation (IBEC) and Transoceanic-AOFC Ltd., both belonging to the American Rockefeller Trust, which took over 60% of the shares. From there on, sales multiplied.
Trimak S.A. was founded at the end of 1959 when it bought the large two-storey building of the MOTO SCOOTER company in Calle Ronda de Toledo in Madrid, manufacturer of the Rondine motorbikes. The new owner, Estanislao Makowiecki, a Polish nationalised Spanish engineer with a great industrial…

Skoda Enyaq IV And The History Of Czech Electric Vehicles

The Skoda Enyaq IV electric is now ready, and it is a vehicle that promises to be a real trendsetter in the market. It is a great bet of the Czech brand towards the electromobility. The Enyak IV is also taking part in the Tour de France. A few weeks ago the Skoda company spoke publicly about its history in the field of electric vehicles, showing photos of its first models. This is a good moment to increase this information and to talk about the previous and subsequent Czech electric vehicles, with some data full of surprise.
The first Czech electric car appeared in 1900. It was a model developed in Switzerland by Jacob Fischer, who wanted to manufacture it in Switzerland under the brand…

The Visitor: Trucks For Cape Juby In Morocco

Under the name of "The Visitor" I will occasionally publish reports on the history of the automobile and commercial vehicle that are not related to the topic of electric vehicles. We start today with "Trucks for Cape Juby in Morocco", which I hope you will like.
A high command of the Spanish protectorate Cape Juby in Morocco, a small strip of landscape close to the Canary Islands, but on the African continent, in 1933 commissioned a company of London to ask for the possible supply of large trucks with diesel engines suitable for African roads. The Betancor company contacted the Armstrong-Saurer, Crossley, Foden and Yorkshire companies. The answers together with their…
