The new fully electric retractable ORIS E3 system – now available with the purchase of a new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer with towbar.

ACPS Automotive is expanding its successful product portfolio of the "fully electric retractable towbar": In addition to the existing ORIS E5, the newly introduced ORIS E3 is now also available. This means that two model variants of the series, equipped with a wide range of advantages, are now available on the OE market. The first car model to be launched with the new ORIS E3 system is the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer.

The newly developed and patented product variant E3 covers the increasing demand of customers for a towbar solution for lower and medium loads. With the expanded product portfolio, the company strengthens its leading market position in the field of towbars.

The distinguishing features of the new ORIS E3: The innovative and robust technology provides D-values of up to 12.5 kN. Thus, with less weight and smaller installation space, the new product now also covers lower and medium load ranges, while the ORIS E5 is used for the heavier vehicles with high towing capacity with D-values of greater than 12.5 kN.

The series with both E3 and E5 models is characterised by being maintenance-free and water proof, and both move out quickly and are thereafter immediately ready for use.
The ORIS E3 and E5 systems offer easy handling with maximum comfort, the ball neck does not need to be mounted or dismounted, in rest position the ball neck disappears invisibly behind the bumper. In working position, it offers the best ergonomics when connecting trailers or wheel carriers thanks to the integrated socket. A visual LED indicator and/or acoustic feedback indicates that the system is ready for use.
