FIRST CRRC ULTRA-CAPACITOR TROLLEY BUS EXPORTED TO EUROPE
The trolley bus will be operated in Graz, Austria. The vehicle has been developed by the Chinese company Zhejiang CRRC Electric Vehicle Co.,Ltd which is a subsidiary of CRRC ZELC. This 18m super capacitor electric bus is a second-generation vehicle which inherits new technology from CRRC ZELC. Strict European standard has been applied and the bus is certificated by European Union.
Technically speaking, the super capacitor is the main power unit while lithium titanate battery supplies auxiliary power. An intelligent pantograph is equipped on the roof. The fast charging technology can operate constantly in 24 hours which largely improve the utilization efficiency. The permanent-magnet synchronous motor brings high transfer efficiency. Lightweight aluminum car body has long life time and can resist corrosion.
An ergonomic design brings more comfort for the passengers, for example by offering more seats thanks to the updated technology and an improved equipment arrangement. The ECAS pneumatic technology offers a kneeling function.
