Hyundai un­veils hy­brid bus

NT News - Motoring - - CARS GUIDE -

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.
