Fixxter EV in the CRS
First, fully electric motorhomes added to the Crash Recovery System
In recent months, countless motorhomes of different brands have been added to the Crash Recovery System database, all with a combustion engine. This has changed with the addition of the electric e-Fixxter and e-Fixxter XXL motorhomes from the Netherlands.
The basis of these compact motorhomes is the chassis of a model from the PSA Group (Peugeot Expert, Toyota Proace or Opel Vivaro). The body is made motorhome-ready by VDL and provided with extra reinforcement in the roof.
The powertrain consists of an electric motor of 100 kW or 136 hp. A lithium-ion battery pack of 75 kW is responsible for a range of about 250 km. There are many solar panels on the e-Fixxter’s retractable roof to recharge this battery pack. 100% electric has been the departure point, so cooking or heating is done via the extra-large 200 Ah household battery or the grid. However, many e-Fixxters are also still equipped with gas cylinders, which are displayed in the CRS.
The motorhomes are also available as Fixxter and Fixxter XXL and have a diesel combustion engine. In addition, Fixxter is working on a hydrogen variant, which is scheduled to be available in 2023 and will be marketed under H2-Fixxter.
Points of attention for first responders
For first responders, the reinforcement in the roof, the lithium-ion battery pack, the gas bottles and the solar panels are essential points of attention. These and other components can all be found in the CRS rescue sheet. The e-Fixxters are available in the Crash Recovery System after downloading the most recent database update from November 2022.
