It is possible to let Frisian Motors lower the speeds, for instance in connection with the safety on events or recreational terrain. It is your choice which maximum speed you want for the Leffert. The speed limit has two forms, fixed and variable. The fixed limit makes sure that the vehicle can’t go faster than the requested speed. With a variable limit the vehicle can switch between low and high speeds controlled with an admin key.

Yes, the AGM battery packages that Frisian Motors uses, are the most ecological lead batteries. These batteries don’t use acids and are therefore easier to recycle. Also the new type of lithium batteries are reusable. 

The range is determined by the type of vehicle, the driving style and the type of terrain that is being driven on. The Leffert is standardly delivered with an maintenance free AGM battery package. With an fully charged package approximately 60-80 km can be driven. With cold weather and heavy usage the range can drop to 40 km with a full charge. For every lead battery the packages can be charged up to  500-800 times. Our customers use the lead batteries for an average of 4-6 years. The capacity of the batteries declines per year. Lithium batteries are modular and can be charged up to 1200-2000 times. Our customers use the lithium batteries averagely 6-12 years. 

Frisian Motors makes almost standardly use of maintenance free AGM lead batteries. Against a higher price we can replace the batteries with lithium batteries. These lithium batteries are capable of heavier duty, drive longer distances per charge and have three or four times the life expectancy of the lead batteries. On the long term this is the most feasible option. Because the battery package doesn’t need replacement as quickly. With the use of lithium an attractive subsidy can be arranged for corporate usage. 

Standardly the charging takes 6-8 hours. Optionally speed a quick charger is available, which drops the charging times to four hours. For the lithium batteries the charging time is six hours. With the quick chargers the battery package can be fully charged in approximately 2 hours. Sometimes a 380 volt outlet is required.

With preference Frisian Motors delivers to you or deliver the vehicle to an dealership. We will give extensive instructions about the vehicle after delivering. 

Wilt u meerdere dagen een Leffert uitproberen, dan adviseren wij u eerst een wagen te huren voor enkele dagen (dit kan via www.rentric.nl). Indien u daarna een machine aanschaft, wordt een geedeelte van de huurkosten weer met u verrekend. In sommige gevallen zijn er in overleg met dealers ook andere mogelijkheden. Informeer hierover bij onze afdeling verkoop.

Elektrische aandrijving is efficiënter dan een brandstofmotor, het totaal verbruikte energie is lager en daardoor beter voor het milieu. Daarnaast is veel minder onderhoud nodig, omdat er minder slijtende delen in de voertuigen zitten. Als u groene stroom gebruikt om op te laden of zelf zonnepanelen , dan is het helemaal een verbetering voor het milieu.
