The DOK-ING company, famous in the world for its production of robotic mine clearance and fire-fighting systems, initiated the concept of the first Croatian urban electric vehicle XD in 2009. So far the company developed various prototypes of electric machines intended for use in mine clearance, mining industry and fire fighting.

The presentation of the first Croatian electric car XD concept took place on the Geneva Auto Show 2010. It has been pointed out in organizer’s official reports as an example of good approach in electric car concepts, defying the generally established opinion qualifying them as slow and uncomfortable.
