ORTEN Electric-Trucks electrifies your new or used diesel-driven commercial vehicle (3t - 18t total weight), trades small e-vehicles and helps you to expand sustainable worldwide inner city logistics. Take a stand against CO2 and NO2 emission by turning your fleet into an environmentally-friendly fleet. ORTEN creates “moving innovations” in Bernkastel-Kues since 1925. In 2012, ORTEN started to be active in the electric mobility sector and founded the independent start-up-business ORTEN Electric-Trucks in July 2015.  

The transport sector, where most of the vehicles use a combustion engine, bears the main responsibility for an increase of NO2, CO2 and noise emission. As a result, the EU reacts with strong restrictions and prohibitions of diesel-driven vehicles in urban spaces. Together with the European Commission, governments plan to reduce the number of diesel-driven vehicles by 50% until 2030. However, ORTEN Electric-Trucks is convinced that electrification is the chance to secure urban-related distribution and to increase inner city logistics by 24 hours. We move ahead - go with us.
