Being part of the worldwide Randstad Group we have an extensive network of clients and professionals.
The Toyota Land Cruiser 70 Series & Toyota Hilux are legends and probably the most used light vehicles in mining, worldwide.
The heavy-duty frame and powertrain have proven to survive in these rough environments and the basic design makes the Land Cruiser & Hilux the ideal base for specially built conversions needed for the different trades inside the mines.
However, the standard Land Cruisers & Hilux with diesel engines cannot meet future emission standards.
Health, safety and clean air are a big part of the challenges faced in underground mining and for this it is obvious that the days are just about over for the diesel-powered Land Cruiser & Hilux.
Converting the Land Cruiser & Hilux into battery-powered 100% electric vehicles is a logical step to make.
The company transforms the Land Cruiser into the Tembo e-LV Electric Cruiser and the Hilux into the Tembo e-LV Electric HLX.
The Tembo e-LV's are available as complete vehicles or kits and are manufactured in The Netherlands and assembly is done by our local partners worldwide.
