What influence does e-mobility have on animal welfare in agriculture?
Electric commercial vehicles have a special effect when used on the farm and in the stable.
Vehicles powered by a lithium-ion battery are particularly quiet while driving and working. By reducing the noise level, the animals are exposed to less stress.
Added to this is the fact that electric motors do not emit any exhaust gases. This means that no unpleasant odors or harmful gases are released. Particularly in closed stables with sometimes narrow ceilings, exhaust fumes can have a negative impact on animal welfare.
The same effects can be seen in other facilities with animals, such as zoos or animal parks. Here too, switching to electric commercial vehicles can have a positive impact on animal welfare.
