New Vk3 version by VEM will debut in Italy, other markets are considered
Rimini, Italy, November 11, 2022: With around 70,000 visitors expected and well over 1,000 exhibitors, speakers and other companies, Ecomondo is not only the largest trade fair for circular economy, sustainability and environmental technology in the Mediterranean region but also a perfect stage for the Sevic Vk3, a compact electric vehicle for waste disposal. After a successful first day at the fair, the Italian maker of the innovative vehicle, Vehicles Electric Motion S.r.l. (VEM Green), draws a first positive balance. "The Ecomondo is considered one of the most important trend monitors for new solutions around the big topic of sustainability. We are all the more pleased that we have received such positive feedback on our vehicles. On the very first day, several thousand visitors were able to get an idea of the innovative technology and the wide range of possible applications of the vehicle - which we are presenting here at our more than 900 square meter stand in Hall C5 as a municipal waste disposal vehicle," says Roberto Quaranta, CEO of VEM S.r.l.
About the Sevic Vk3 and its use in Italy
Sevic Vk3 is a 100% electric vehicle designed and built to complement waste collection operations in urban centers and restricted traffic areas where larger vehicles have difficulty accessing. The aluminum tipping tank empties in just 23 seconds, and thanks to the rear loader, bins of 120, 240 and 360 liters can be lifted.
The Vk3 confirms to the new CAM - Minimal Environmental Criteria of Italy. This new set of laws will come into force at the end of 2022 (see Gazzetta ufficiale n. 182 del 5/8/2022). Among the declared objectives is to reduce the impacts of transport also by promoting technological innovations for the vehicles used. This is where VEM with the Sevic Vk3 provides a much-needed solution.
Compact Electric Waste Vehicle is ideal for use in Mediterranean Cities
The basis for the Sevic Vk3 is the Sevic V500e - a compact electric commercial vehicle of the L7e-CU class, ideal for use in the narrow streets of the metropolises around the Mediterranean. The vehicle is built in Europe and consists mainly of parts of European origin. Sevic's corporate headquarters are in Bochum, Germany. Thanks to near- and reshoring, Sevic has access to a stable supply chain and an excellent spare parts supply. During the development of the V500e, which is just 1,40m wide, great importance was attached to maneuverability and quality. In the case of the Sevic Vk3, the vehicle has been combined with a tank that can be tilted and tipped - perfect for the collection of waste in narrow alleys and in places that are inaccessible to large garbage collection vehicles.
A large and extremely efficient Italian service network ensures safety and service for all aspects of the Sevic vehicles. In addition to sales, VEM offers service together with the Maurelli Group. The Maurelli Group consists of 38 branches and a network of over 400 affiliated workshops throughout Italy, providing fast and highly professional aftersales service.
At Ecomondo, VEM and Sevic experts will be available for discussions until November 11. The Sevic Vk3 waste disposal vehicle will be presented exclusively at the VEM booth in Hall C5.
