ARI 458 Box L as Coolin Van to transport food in Drensteinfurt (Germany)

ARI 458 Cooling Van

Sustainability has many facets. In addition to electromobility - as represented by ARI Motors - an important one concerns food and its distribution. Because in Germany several tons of perfect food are destroyed every day, while many economically disadvantaged people experience a shortage. This is where the nationwide "Tafel'' associations come in, which collect excess food and distribute it unbureaucratically to people who are financially weaker.

The electric transporter used in Drensteinfurt is an ARI 458 Box L. This has a loading space with a length of 149 cm, a width of 125 cm and a height of 110 cm. This means that more than 2.1 m³ volume is available for groceries and other goods. To keep the food fresh, the vehicle is also equipped with a cooling system in the case that can be controlled individually. This version is now available as the ARI 458 Cooling Van.
