Commercial Vehicle - - WHAT'S INSIDE -

VE Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles has in­tro­duced elec­tric buses un­der its Eicher brand. De­vel­oped by in­te­grat­ing KPIT’s ‘Revolo’ elec­tri­fi­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy, the elec­tric bus range is based on the com­pany’s ver­sa­tile Sky­line Pro plat­form. Pro­duced at the Pitham­pur fa­cil­ity of the com­pany, the elec­tric bus range in­cludes a 9 m Sky­line Pro E bus that was re­cently un­veiled by the com­pany. Of­fer­ing a range of 177 kms on a sin­gle charge, the air-con­di­tioned bus is equipped with best-in-class trans­port sys­tem. Gen­er­at­ing up to 36 per cent of en­ergy, which leads to less than 0.8 elec­tric­ity units per km, the bus com­plies to the high­est safety stan­dards, in­clud­ing ‘Nail Pen­e­tra­tion’ test for bat­ter­ies. Pro­vided with a top-up charger for en-route charg­ing, the bus is claimed to op­er­ate at lower volt­age. The abil­ity to op­er­ate at lower volt­age is said to have re­sulted in the bus hav­ing a small­est pos­si­ble bat­tery as part of a mod­u­lar sys­tem that is de­signed to work un­der In­dian con­di­tions.
