Lielahden Autokeskus Oy launched a conversion plant for electric trucks in the autumn of 2021. The recruitment training for electric truck mechanics began in early September. The training has got off to a good start and in connection with it, diesel technology has been removed from the first diesel trucks. An electric engine, batteries and other technology required by electric vehicles are installed during the autumn. In the meantime, the trainees are studying vehicle and especially electric vehicle engineering.
