KAMAZ BUILDS PLANT FOR ELECTRIC BUSES IN MOSCOW
The Russian commercial vehicle manufacturer Kamaz is building a production facility for electric buses and their components in Moscow, as well as an innovation center that will work on improving the quality of electric passenger transport.
Around 14 million euros will be invested in the project. In the Russian capital, at least 500 electric buses are to be produced each year. Last year, Moscow bus operator Mosgortrans commissioned Kamaz and GAZ to deliver 100 electro buses and the respective charging infrastructure. In April this year, Moscow ordered a further 100 electric buses and 36 fast charging stations from Kamaz. The contract provides for the delivery of e-buses for a period of 15 years, which were developed according to the requirements of the city. From 2021 Moscow wants to procure only electric buses and stop the purchase of diesel buses completely. (www.mos.ru)
