The Advantages of Bus Electrification

Electrify Your Business:
For a Sustainable and Green Future

Emission-free by 2050: This is stipulated by the Paris Climate Protection Agreement. But it is already a focus topic, as there will be a mandatory quota for the bus sector as early as August 1, 2021. By the end of 2025, 45% of all newly registered vehicles must be emission-free. After 2025, the intent is even to increase this to 65%. Would you like to convert your existing diesel bus fleet, or are you looking for an integrated battery solution to equip new vehicles? If so, we are at your side as a reliable and expert partner.

The Challenges of Bus Electrification

A dynamic and constantly changing environment

High CO2 pollution in cities

New technology, lack of transparency, and low availability

Battery development requires high volumes

Loss of range 

High costs for battery production and certification
