11/2017 IT‘S TIME FOR THINGS TO TURN – WE OFFER A DIFFERENT MOTOR
ZAwheel® is as quiet as a mouse when driving and costs much less overall to operate than previous bus drive concepts have. This is for real. ZAwheel® puts the future right on the street. Even German Chancellor Angela Merkel was impressed to find this when she visited this year‘s Hanover trade fair, where Peter Fenkl, chairman of the board of ZIEHL-ABEGG SE, introduced the smart ZAwheel® drive system to her. The fine-dust debate is a thing of the past with ZAwheel® and smelly diesel engines can also be displaced by the modern wheel hub drive ZAwheel®. The recipe for the new drive concept, which was created by ZIEHL-ABEGG in many years of research and development work, is very simple: ZAwheel® does not need any differentials, gears or exhausts. The drive is located right at the centre of the wheel – wheel-hub drive –, where it applies its entire energy specifically and exclusively for perfect sustainable bus operation on the street without any detours.
