EBUSCO TESTED BY VEOLIA IN FINLAND
Ebusco, the Dutch manufacturer of electric buses, had a prototype of its full electric bus on a test ride in the Finish city of Espoo during the last week of March. The results of this test are very promising, according to both parties involved. Since the presentation of the Ebusco 100% electric bus in Eindhoven last year and later on in Hannover during the IAA, things turn out to be booming.
The mission of Ebusco is to promote and sell 100% electric buses and drive systems for electric buses and all related auxiliary systems for electric buses. For this, Ebusco signed an agreement with Yintong Power from China. Yintong Power, initially being the leading company on electric power storage systems, extended its product portfolio to electric drive systems and all related auxiliary systems for 100% electric vehicles. This extensive product portfolio makes Yintong to be the number one producer of complete drive-, power- and charging systems for electric vehicles, according to Ebusco. One of the results of a vast engineering effort is the Ebusco full electric bus, equipped with both Yintong as well as Dutch parts and components.
By the agreement with Yintong Power, Ebusco is the exclusive distributor of the products of Yintong for Europe.
Apart from complete 100% electric buses which have a body by Huanghai, that was redesigned by the Dutch industrial designer KesselsGranger, this vehicle has a full European type approval, Ebusco can supply all key components and key systems to build a 100% electric bus or convert present diesel buses to full electric buses. It supplies electric components, sub systems and auxiliaries for buses and any other type of electric vehicle, like electric motors, motor controllers, battery packages, auxiliaries and on board-, single- and multiple chargers up to charge stations for 32 buses. These components have proven to be reliable and efficient in hundreds of buses during normal daily operation travelling approx. 325 km per day for more than two years.
