In short, we strip out the diesel engine and replace it with an electric one. In reality, this is a complex process, bespoke-designed for each vehicle model, which considers the requirements of the engine, transmission, steering, braking, electrical and other auxiliary systems and even the aesthetics and functionality within the driver’s cab and the passenger area. The dashboard (human machine interface) is also refreshed with advanced, modern technology.
Vehicle chassis and body modifications are kept to a minimum since each retrofit is purposefully engineered to fit the former diesel engine space. As an option, an internal and/or external refurbishment can also be included to modernise the bus.
Effectively, we breathe new life into five to 10 year old buses, making them cleaner and quieter for society, more comfortable for passengers, and more valuable as assets for fleet owners.
