At only $2,600, the Robeta electric fire truck may just be the world’s most affordable fire truck.
Not to mention you can buy it online!
Fully decked-out fire trucks usually cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, but municipalities, businesses, or even individuals looking to protect themselves against small fires now have a truly affordable (and even environment-friendly) option.
The Robeta fire truck is a one-seat full-electric vehicle with a range of 31-37 miles (50/60 kilometers) and a decent fire-fighting arsenal.
It’s certainly not the most impressive world’s fire truck, but for $2,600, it will be enough!
This pretty little fire engine is a mere 2.4 meters long, features full LED lighting, and hydraulic brakes that give it a stopping distance of just 3 meters.
In terms of fire-stopping power, it comes with two small fire extinguishers, a 60-meter-long fire hose, a small hatchet, and an assortment of gear that should help you deal with small fires.
Although the Robeta doesn’t seem like much of a fire truck, it isn’t absolutely useless.
A real fire truck is not only obscenely expensive in comparison, it’s also generally huge, which makes it difficult to use in tight spaces.
At just $2,600, the Robeta electrical fire truck is cheap, so instead of one fire truck, you can get dozens, if not hundreds of these little things. Plus, it’s compact and can be used by pretty much anyone, even without any firefighting training.
Ok, so maybe the above arguments don’t justify its existence, but the fact that this may just be the world’s smallest and cheapest electrical fire truck is cool enough!
