The Swiss start-up Flux Mobility relies on a self-developed electrical construction kit when converting the MAN TGE vans.
Just one year after its founding in 2021, the start-up Flux Mobility from Switzerland has now presented the first prototypes of its ready-to-drive electric transporters.
The concept of Flux Mobility follows that of many other electric car conversion companies. This engine is taken from the chassis of a diesel transporter and replaced by a scalable electric drive. At Flux Mobility, the choice of chassis fell on the MAN TGE, the almost identical brother to the VW Crafter. MAN itself offers the TGE in an electric version, but it cannot keep up with the Swiss conversion in terms of key data.
Drive package according to customer requirements
Flux Mobility states ranges of up to 350 kilometers, a maximum payload of 2.5 tons and a maximum trailer load of 3.5 tons for vans converted with its modular system. All-wheel drive is also possible. The top speed is up to 120 km/h. Flux puts the loading time at a sensational 15 minutes. However, Flux Mobility still has no more precise data on batteries and electric motors. MAN states a maximum range of 130 kilometers for its own e-transporter. ,
Each van is individually tailored to the needs of the customer. The modular platform from Flux Mobility also allows the free choice of different chassis variants from the closed box to a transporter with a loading area. Accordingly, Flux does not communicate any prices, since no converted van is like another. However, Flux also offers the conversion of suitable used vehicles.
The first deliveries of Flux E-transporters are planned for June 2022. ,
A Swiss start-up has developed a scalable electrical kit that can be used to convert new and used vans to electric drives. The configuration is made according to customer requirements. Vehicles with special bodies can also be converted.
