The VW T5 with long wheelbase, converted by eCap into an electric vehicle, can be operated as a 9-seat minibus or as a van. Our client, Becker Marine Systems, originally intended to use the T5 as a shuttle between the company's main offices in the south of Hamburg and an energy supply barge operated by the customer at the Port of Hamburg. The T5's mission changed in the wake of the "refugee crisis". As spur of the moment aid from Becker Marine Systems, the vehicle was made available free of charge to the refugee relief organization in Harburg. Since then, the electric vehicle has been used daily as the "channel shuttle" as part of the refugee aid programme, either as a shuttle or as help when relocating.
