The latest from Israel: A new electric truck made for Israelis.
An Israeli company that builds small electric vehicles (EVs) is introducing the “Eclipse” to the market in a bid to boost the nation’s electric vehicle fleet.
The Eclipse, as the vehicle is called, is a two-wheel drive vehicle that is equipped with a solar roof and is designed to be used in urban areas.
The company’s CEO, David Yadin, said the Eclipse’s battery pack, which holds about 70 percent of the vehicle’s power, is able to run for up to six hours at a time, and it is designed for use in both the Israeli desert and in the urban environment.
The solar roof, which offers excellent thermal insulation, can be used for up the entire journey, while the company’s battery is able hold up to 90 percent of its energy capacity, Yadin said.
In order to meet the needs of Israeli residents, Yadins company is launching the Eclipse in a series of smaller vehicles.
The Eclipse is the first of its kind, and its electric truck will be offered with different sizes and color options, the company said.
“The Eclipse is a compact electric vehicle with the potential to be a major component of the countrys electricity supply,” Yadin added.
“It is not a plug-in electric vehicle, it is an electric vehicle that can be adapted for various applications in urban environments.”
The company has developed its Eclipse as a solution to the growing demand for electric vehicles, which are increasingly popular among consumers and businesses in the United States.
According to the National Electric Vehicle Association, more than 50,000 plug-ins were sold in the U.S. in the first six months of this year.
According to Yadin and the company, it has developed an electric engine that is more efficient than the conventional one, which requires the use of a diesel motor, which is more expensive.
The engine is more energy efficient than gasoline-powered engines in the same size, and the solar roof is designed in such a way that it absorbs the sun’s rays, which helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The Solar Roof can be attached to a variety of roofs, including those in offices, malls and shopping centers, according to the company.
According a 2014 study conducted by the Israeli think tank Center for Research and Strategic Studies, about 85 percent of Israelis use a plug in their vehicle.
Yadins team said it has been working with several companies in the field of electric vehicles for over a decade and hopes to increase the size of the Eclipse.
“We have built a product that is compatible with many different types of roofs in the country, including office, retail, industrial, residential and commercial spaces,” Yadin said.
“Our goal is to bring the Eclipse to market in the next few years, and we will be making more of these vehicles available to consumers in the near future.”
According to the study, one million plug-and-play electric vehicles were sold to Israeli consumers in 2015, and about 70,000 EVs were sold, or roughly 10 percent of all plug-on vehicles sold in Israel.
“Electric vehicles are the future of the market,” Yadan added.
