The Voltra eCruiser™ fully electric 4×4 is purpose-built for underground & open cut mining to produce zero harmful emissions and save on maintenance costs, while still providing the trademark toughness and durability of a 70 Series Toyota LandCruiser.
Diesel emissions pose both short and long-term risks to health, ranging from mild effects such as headaches, irritation and nausea, to respiratory disease, cancer and even chemical asphyxiation caused by carbon monoxide. In 2012, the World Health Organisation concluded that diesel particulate matter is carcinogenic to the same degree as cigarette smoke and asbestos. Diesel machinery in underground mines presents some of the most severe exposures to this hazard.
Removing the source of the exhaust emission eliminates the problem, provides a safer working environment and reduces the enormous cost of removing contaminated air.
