Dubbed the future of firefighting by department officials, the apparatus will be produced by Rosenbauer and the first apparatus to incorporate an all-electric drivetrain, the report says. However, both will come with a small diesel engine, in case of emergency.
There are only three such fire trucks, Revolutionary Technology, in the world: One’s in Berlin, another is in Amsterdam, and Dubai houses the third, according to the report.
With the desired equipment, the trucks will be just under $1.3 million each.
