OUR PRODUCT LINE
Ebus has a proven track record of providing the highest quality electric drive buses and trolleys. The current product line includes a range of fast-charge electric, hybrid-electric and fuel cell electric buses, and fast-charge electric and hybrid-electric trolleys. Each vehicle represents years of research and development culminating in the availability of clean, reliable and fuel-efficient transit solutions.
Electric Drive is the common denominator of all the vehicles that Ebus provides. An electric traction motor drives the rear axle instead of an internal combustion engine, as in an ordinary bus. The electric traction motor is powered by the battery system, via an inverter.
In an all-electric bus, the battery system needs to be re-charged periodically from an external charger connected to the electric grid. With the optional 90KW Fast-Charger, this becomes fast and convenient.
In a fuel cell bus, the fuel cell system can charge the battery system continuously and there is no requirement to connect to an external charger. However, it may still be desirable to do so, since electricity from the grid is always the cheapest. Driving range is only limited by the amount of hydrogen available. The fuel cell bus can also be charged with the optional 90KW Fast-Charger and be operated in battery-electric mode with the fuel cell turned off.
In a series hybrid-electric bus, a micro-turbine generator serves the role of continuously charging the battery system and there is no requirement to regularly connect to an external charger. The amount of fuel onboard determines the driving range of the hybrid vehicle.
Ebus manufactures its 22 foot buses and trolleys “from the ground up”, but is also capable of providing a complete turn-key hybrid system for larger transit buses, new or existing.
