Electric police vehicles are something that we see from time to time, but an electric fire truck is a rare sight.

This particular one was built by Kreisel Electric in Austria and is a fully functional vehicle in Linz.

According to Kreisel Electric, these types of vehicles are another perfect fit for electric conversions because typically a fire truck covers only short distances and charging can be done in between calls.
