VÚKV is currently carrying out approval tests of an untypical Tatravagónka-built car-carrier. Basically, it is a wagon of the usual low-deck concept for transporting larger road vehicles, but these are normally only two-section wagons, while this Class Laados designated type, is a three-section one.
It is the result of a collaboration between Tatravagónka and the Hödlmayr Group, an established company in the field of rail car logistics. With a maximum payload of 60.4 t at a capacity of six tractors (corresponding to an axle load of 16 t), it is designed to transport tractors with electric (battery) drive, which are heavier than conventional tractors with only a diesel engine. The prototype was completed shortly before the Transport Logistic 2023 trade fair.
