Motivated by the benefits inherent to our vehicles, the City of Tønsberg, Section for Park and Control was the first park and control customers to put the Paxster into their operations. We paid them a visit 1 year after delivery to learn more about their motivation and experience.
A reliable working partner
Tønsberg municipality is satisfied that the 100% electric Paxster is a reliable work partner that replaces their regular car. It allows the parking attendant to perform the tasks faster and more cost-effectively than before. The vehicle is specially adapted for assignments in urban and local areas where sustainability, efficiency and ergonomics are important, and it is produced for professional players with high requirements for operational safety and operating costs.
“Beeing in the city center all day, it is important that we do our part considering the environment”Erik Lund – Head of Division
Took an environmental stand at an early stage
For å forhindre luftforurensning blir individuell trafikk med motorkjøretøyer stadig mer begrenset i bysentre og urbane områder In order to prevent air pollution – individual traffic with motor vehicles is becoming increasingly restricted in city centers and urban areas around the world. While the city center of Tønsberg is not yet restricted, Tønsberg Parking takes a stand when it comes to its environmental footprint by implementing Paxster and eliminating fossil fuel-powered cars.
Driver’s ergonomics in focus
Being tailor-made for last-mile operations in high- and medium-density areas, the Paxster is designed to allow drivers quick and ergonomic entry/exit of the cabin. Going in and out of the vehicle several times per day is also a key element of Tønsberg Parking operations. The vehicle is both agile and easy to operate in city areas. With a narrow turning radius of only 1.75meters, it makes navigating tight parking spaces a breeze.
According to Lund, the Paxster is also offering new opportunities for on-site inspections. The plan is to install a camera with number plate recognition (ANPR) software to simplify inspections.
The vehicles were also delivered with automatic warning lamps, that activate when the Parking Agent has halted the vehicle and left the seat.
