Los Angeles Fire Department has new tech. An electric vehicle in the form of a fire truck. Made in Austria, LAFD Station 82 in Hollywood will be the first to enjoy this high-tech wonder. It does come with a backup diesel engine as a range extender. Add in 7″ to 19″ adjustable ground clearance, 4 wheel steering, massive amounts of lights, remote controls, camera systems, and it starts to be a sci-fi dream machine. It’s a little more expensive, but when you start tallying the bells and whistles, it may be worth it… at least Hollywood thinks so.
The Austrian-built Rosenbauer RTX electric fire truck went straight to the Los Angeles Fire Department to start its fire truck duties.
