Commercial Vehicle - - NEWS -

The 9 m long elec­tric bus de­vel­oped by Tata Mo­tors on the Ul­tra plat­form has com­menced tri­als at Chandi­garh. With a ca­pac­ity to seat 31 pas­sen­gers, the bus will run for 15 days. The elec­tric bus trial at Chandi­garh fol­lows the trial of a 9 m elec­tric bus from Par­wanoo to Shimla. The bus is said to have per­formed well, cov­er­ing the dis­tance of 160 km on a full charge. The tri­als at Chandi­garh are said to be show­ing en­cour­ag­ing re­sults. Con­sum­ing 70 per cent of the charge, the bus trav­elled for 143 km claimed sources aware of the de­vel­op­ment. A part of the Min­istry of Road Trans­port’s agenda to elec­trify pub­lic trans­port in smart cities, the trial is ex­pected to pro­vide data to the man­u­fac­turer and a deep un­der­stand­ing of the fac­tors that gov­ern the smooth op­er­a­tion of a trans­port ve­hi­cle.
