Hyundai unveils hybrid bus
SOUTH Korean brand Hyundai has released a bus that combines clean burning compressed natural gas and electric power. The hybrid bus is a first for the rising vehicle producer. It has a CNG engine that produces 177kW linked to an electric motor that generates 60kW. It is also easy to drive thanks to a six-speed automated transmission. The bus now has only five CNG tanks, down from seven in the previous model, and will go 340km before a refill.
