Battery-electric propulsion is the cleanest, quietest and most economical propulsion method available today. Driving range for the Ebus Electric Bus is approximately 45 miles between charges, which can be accomplished in about 30 minutes with the Ebus-built 90KW Fast-Charger.
The Electric Bus is ideal on urban circulator routes, university campuses, or in residential neighborhoods where the very low noise level is appreciated. The 22-foot long bus accomodates 22 seated passengers and 10 standees.
Regenerative braking also increases the energy efficiency of each bus by returning energy to the battery system whenever the vehicle is decelerating. Low maintenance nickel cadmium batteries provide about 45 miles of operation between charges and have a life expectancy of up to 2,000 cycles.
The Ebus 22 foot Fast-Charge Electric Bus is starts at $295,000, plus taxes and shipping. The 90KW Fast-Charger is priced at $58,000 and can support multiple buses or trolleys.
