pepper motion welcomed quite a lot of guests, at the end of September, to celebrate the inauguration of the company’s new headquarters in Denkendorf, Germany. It may not ring any bell to a lot of people, but pepper motion is the brand-new name of the former German electro mobility OEM e-troFit, which has recently presented a modular and scalable electrification kit for trucks weighing over 7.5 tons.
