Ebusco has again reached a new milestone in the further development of zero-emission driving in public transport. This by applying new techniques and materials in the production of his buses. This makes the new bus 33% lighter and can reach distances of up to 500 km with a charged battery pack. With this, Ebusco equals the radius of diesel buses, but without the emissions and without the high costs of fuel. But with much higher comfort, better safety and more space for travelers.
Ebusco has already broken records and with the Ebusco 2.2 it already has a very attractive bus in production. This with a battery pack of 423 kWh with a range of up to 450 km. With the Ebusco 3.0, the company is raising the bar again by applying techniques from the aerospace industry.
The company only develops electric buses and is therefore not dependent on diesel technology and the specific limitations that this entails in its thinking and acting. In recent years, the company has introduced a number of innovations, making it the fastest growing and best-selling E-bus company in Europe.
With a multifunctional team of experts from, among others, aviation, automotive and electronics, the company has built a bus that consists largely of composite parts. Composite is made up of different fiber-reinforced plastics in terms of material. This makes the bus even 33% lighter than the Ebusco 2.2 without sacrificing robustness, stiffness and safety.
Precisely by moving away from the traditional way of thinking, safety, applicability and comfort have increased enormously. The design is fully geared to this new development, leaving even more space for innovative applications. This greatly increases comfort for both the traveler and the driver.
“This new bus marks the end of the diesel era. With the Ebusco 2.2, the so-called Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) from Ebusco was already better than the diesel bus, with the Ebusco 3.0 nothing stands in the way of accelerating the sustainability of public transport. We can make the world we live in even faster, cleaner, safer and healthier, ”said Peter Bijvelds, CEO Ebusco.
