Why Towbar-less?

Towbarless tugs are safer because the tug supports the weight of the aircraft nosewheel, and uses the aircraft weight to balance. Because of this, there is no towbar that can bend or break and lead to an aircraft rolling away without brakes.

Why Electric?

Electric tugs are cleaner because, unlike a diesel, there's no need to warm up and there are no fumes pumping into the atmosphere if you have to wait for an aircraft.
