The Future in Underground Mining

Zero Emissions
Low Maintenance cost
Low Operational cost
Less Downtime
Good R.O.I. 

The Toyota Land Cruiser 70 Series & Toyota Hilux are the most common used light vehicles in mining, worldwide.

The heavy duty frame and powertrain have proven to survive in these rough environments and the basic design makes the Land Cruiser & Hilux the ideal base for special built conversions needed for the different trades inside the mines.
However the standard Land Cruisers & Hilux with diesel engines cannot meet future emission standards.
Health, safety and clean air are a big part of the challenges faced in underground mining and for this it is obvious that the days are just about over for the diesel powered Land Cruiser & Hilux.

Converting the Land Cruiser & Hilux into battery powered 100% electric vehicles was a logical step to make.

We transform the Land Cruiser & Hilux into the Tembo 4x4 e-LV, in The Netherlands.
The Tembo 4x4 e-LV is available as complete vehicle only and is assembled in The Netherlands and in the near future assembly will also be done by our partners in Canada & Australia.

The Tembo 4x4 e-LV, electric light vehicle, is in operation in Ireland, Canada, Australia & Germany.

Our company is ISO9001:2015 certified and the Tembo 4x4 e-LV meets the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.

Did you know this:

Tembo means Elephant in the African Swahilli language and that the Elephant is seen as a symbol of strength and power. It is also praised for its longevity, stamina, cooperative spirit, and loyalty.


Developing, producing and servicing electric vehicles requires skilled and highly motivated professionals
who take pride in working as a team to strive for the same goal.

We are growing and like to meet new colleagues for our development and production facility in The Netherlands.
