The lowest CO2 footprint on the market – Jungo Group introduces the Jungo 3.0

From 30.05.2022 to 03.06.2022, IFAT took place in Munich for the first time in 4 years. On Monday morning at 11:00 a.m. the Jungo Group had invited to the big press event at their stand 417 in hall C5. The occasion was the world premiere of the Jungo 3.0, a fully electric multifunctional utility vehicle with an exchangeable battery system. According to the manufacturer, the vehicle not only maximises customer benefits with many new features, but also leaves the lowest CO2 footprint in the industry starting from its design and production to its entire life cycle – in line with the company’s motto “For a cleaner and better world”.

Production takes place at the Laage site near Rostock in an industrial park that is powered 100% by CO2-neutral energy. Even at the design stage, attention was paid to the use of environment-friendly alternatives wherever possible.

According to CEO Nicolas Jungo, if the customer no longer needs the machine or replaces its fleet with new machines, the manufacturer takes the vehicle back, refurbishes it and returns it to the market. Reuse instead of recycling or even scrapping is the motto here.

One of the many innovations is the use of an exchangeable battery system. While one set is in use, the other can be charged slowly which extends the battery life, also through the direct use of renewable energies such as photovoltaics or wind power without having to store them again. This also reduces the overall CO2 footprint of the machine. This avoids power peaks when all vehicles are rapidly charged during lunch breaks or at the end of a shift. Thanks to the optimised exchange trolley, the battery set can then be exchanged in a few minutes and is completely ready for re-use.

Furthermore, the changing system can be operated with one to 4 power packs (batteries). In this way, the energy carried can be adjusted between 15 and 60 kWh for the task at hand and no unnecessary weight is carried when demand is low.
