Thula Solution’s CEO, Gary Davies, told TopAuto that BRV is looking to replace its diesel bakkies with Thula’s electric powertrains to create fully electric 4x4s.
The ESV was developed to refine the game drives in South Africa, providing safari-goers with noise and vibration-free experiences.
“Stringent battery management protocols and redundancies to leading European standards are part of the design,” Thula says on its ESV webpage.
The Thula ESV can charge to full capacity in two hours, which will provide the driver with 100km of range. “Based on the average cost for electricity and diesel in 2020, you could save up to 75% of your fuel cost for your vehicles,” Thula said.
