WHAT ARE HY­BRID BUSES?

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI MUMBAI -

The hy­brid air con­di­tioned buses are diesel-elec­tric and en­vi­ron­ment-friendly buses as they cre­ate less pol­lu­tion. As per the tech­ni­cal spec­i­fi­ca­tions, th­ese buses will re­duce fuel costs by a ten­ta­tive 30% and also have low emis­sion lev­els as well as give more mileage than that of the reg­u­lar AC Volvo buses. The bat­tery that drives the mo­tor is charged through re­gen­er­a­tive brak­ing. The en­gine shuts off when the ve­hi­cle is sta­tion­ary and does not start again till the bus reaches a speed of 15 to 20 kmph, thus saving fuel fur­ther.
