theme at the Auto Expo 2018 seems to have had sig­nif­i­cant res­o­nance with com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle man­u­fac­tur­ers. Most of the com­mer­cial com­muter buses that were show­cased at the expo fo­cussed on green en­ergy util­i­sa­tion. And this is why the Euro­pean e-mo­bil­ity ma­jor was no dif­fer­ent. Keep­ing with the theme, JBM So­laris Elec­tric Ve­hi­cles Ltd launched its Eco-Life Elec­tric bus se­ries that are a 100 per cent elec­tric. The com­pany claims that the new Eco-Life se­ries have the ca­pac­ity to save around 959 equiv­a­lent tons of car­bon diox­ide and 350,000 liters of diesel over a pe­riod of 10 years. The elec­tric bus is equipped with fea­tures like Pas­sen­ger In­for­ma­tion Sys­tem (PIS) con­nected to GPS, Ve­hi­cle Health Mon­i­tor­ing Sys­tem, Bat­tery Man­age­ment Sys­tem and Fire De­tec­tion and Sup­pres­sion Sys­tem to name a few. Priced at Rs 2 crore, the com­pany is in talks with the UP gov­ern­ment for a ten­der of 10 Eco-life buses to ply in the Delhi-NCR re­gion.
