As a well-established specialist with over 10 years’ experience in the fields of automotive electronics and E-Drive Systems Huber Automotive has been successfully driving product development and JV networking with a view to meeting the growing demand for e-mobility solutions, battery management tools and energy storage systems, as well as sophisticated vehicle electronics.

E-mobility and hybrid vehicle concepts as an all-in-one solution

The e-drive/hybrid division supplies e-mobility and hybrid vehicle units as an all-in-one solution. Like the original, the electric version of the Toyota Land Cruiser is designed for use in extreme environments and remains a 2WD/4WD vehicle both with and without reduction gearing. It is ideal for operating in rough terrain, especially in the mining industry.

The e-drive system comprises standard components from leading suppliers, for example Bosch. These are arranged into a new architecture that best exploits their individual strengths. This is all made possible thanks to the core element of the system, Huber’s innovative control unit that uses a 32-bit power architecture to extract peak performance from the individual components under ideal thermal conditions. In the brand-new update of the already successful E-Drive Kit, a for Heavy-Duty developed 35 kWh battery pack is installed.

Relevant data on permanent dashboard display

The vehicle’s instrument panel has an implanted digital 10.6-inch display with integral speaker and user interfaces designed to show all key data, such as battery charge, system temperature and speed. A rear-view camera can also be fitted, and its images displayed in picture-in-picture mode.

A powerful performer on road and on rough ground – above and below ground

The RUN-E Land Cruiser has a peak performance of 90 kW at a maximum torque of 1,410 Nm. The standard version can climb gradients of up to 45%, while fitting the extra ‚high off-road‘ equipment creates a vehicle with a theoretical gradeability of 95%. The high-performance and robust 35-kWh battery has a maximum range of 150 km on-road and between 80 and 100 km off-road. The RUN-E Land Cruiser can reach speeds of up to 130 km/h on normal road surfaces, while 35 km/h is possible off-road on gradients up to 15%.

By fitting add-on packages, such as battery cooling or heating and an air-conditioning system, the RUN-E Electric Cruiser can be adapted to suit individual mine-site conditions. If required, a climate control unit can even be fitted for the vehicle’s passenger area.

Add on package

The electric version delivers 100% pollution-free travel, and this greatly enhances the health and safety of the workforce, especially underground, where it also significantly cuts expenditure on vehicle maintenance, oils/fuel and mine ventilation.
