Bakker Barendrecht in the Netherlands currently has five YT tractors, both diesel and electric models, to handle trailers. They recently received a new generation YT-203EV electric tractor for testing.
Driver Faisal Alihoesen and fleet manager Martijn Donker commented that they like the improvements, such as the intuitive fingertip controls by the seat, increased space between the tractor and the trailer, improved cabin suspension and increased space in the cabin. They also noted that the regenerative breaking is an improvement compared to the previous generation of EV.
