Schindler elevators and escalators transport more than 1.5 billion people around the globe every day. And its vehicle fleet is also becoming increasingly electric. The German arm of Schindler has now extended its fleet with the addition of 200 ŠKODA ENYAQ iV electric vehicles.
Schindler master technicians, fitters and sales staff travel the length and breadth of Germany visiting customers, something that they will be able to do comfortably and with locally zero emissions in the future thanks to the pure battery-electric SUV from the Czech carmaker.
Schindler Germany intends to convert practically its entire fleet to electric vehicles by 2024 as part of its sustainability strategy. Employees will be given a charging station for use at home, while the company is also establishing charging points at the larger sites, which will be supplied by photovoltaic systems in part with electricity the company produces itself from renewable resources.
In the interview Jörg Naescher, Director of Supply Chain & Sustainability and Member of the Board of Management of Schindler Deutschland AG & Co KG reports on what prompted his company to make the decision.
“An important aspect of the switch to electric mobility is that it allows our service engineers to drive to our customers with net-zero carbon emissions. This represents a decisive advantage for the carbon footprint of our customers too.”

1) The specified fuel consumption and emission data has been determined according to the measurement procedures prescribed by law. Since 1 September 2017, certain new vehicles are already being type-approved according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure for measuring fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Starting on 1 September 2018, the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Because it involves more realistic testing conditions, the fuel consumption and CO2 emission values calculated in accordance with the WLTP are in many cases higher than those calculated in accordance with the NEDC. Further information about the differences between WLTP and NEDC can be found at https://www.skoda-auto.de/wltp.
We are currently still required by law to state the NEDC figures. In the case of new vehicles, which have been type-approved according to the WLTP, the NEDC figures are derived from the WLTP data. Until it becomes compulsory, additional information about the WLTP values is provided on a voluntary basis. In cases where the NEDC figures are specified as value ranges, these do not refer to a particular individual vehicle and do not constitute part of the sales offering. They are intended solely for comparing different types of vehicles. Additional equipment and accessories (e.g. add-on parts, different tyre formats etc.) may change the relevant vehicle parameters, such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics, and, in conjunction with weather and traffic conditions and individual driving style, may affect fuel consumption, electrical power consumption, CO2 emissions and the performance figures for the vehicle.
Further information on official fuel consumption figures and the official, specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the “Guide on the fuel economy, CO2 emissions and power consumption of new passenger car models”, which is available free of charge at all sales dealerships and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern, Germany, or at www.dat.de.
