ElektroFahrzeuge Schwaben GmbH (EFA-S) de-
velops eco-friendly and highly efficient electric
power-trains for passenger cars and commer-
cial vehicles to make e-mobility affordable and
profitable. This Swabian company’s competitive
edge is based on a combination of three factors:
• Extensive know-how and innovations in bat-
tery technology and battery management
• Use of the latest three-phase synchronous
motors
• Retrofitting existing vehicles, making the
purchase of new ones unnecessary
EFA-S retrofits existing, already amortised but
reliable vehicles, which mostly have engines
that don’t comply with today’s environmental
protection regulations and have a negative im-
pact on the company’s image. As fully electri-
cally powered vehicles they can be used in low-
emission zones and promote a positive image.
EFA-S retrofits vehicles with load capacities of
up to 7.5 tonnes with electric drive-trains, irre-
spective of the brand or vehicle type. The list of
retrofitted vehicles ranges from VW Polo to VW
Transporter/Bus, or vans such as Iveco Daily
and Renault Master.
EFA-S vehicles are used by the greengrocer
next door, who sells goods at regional markets
and might even pull a two-tonne trailer, and
such large enterprises as UPS. The parcel ser-
vice has its traditional brown service vans of the
type P80 retrofitted by EFA-S to electric with a
load capacity of 3.5 tonnes. The vehicles are
used in the regions of the Swabian Alb, the Ruhr
region, in Karlsruhe and Amsterdam.
