Reduce fuel consumption by about 40%
Reduce emission by over 70%
- First Range Extended Electric coach developed and built in Hong Kong
- Powered by advanced Siemens ELFA® electric drive system
- Equipped with Siemens on board generator which recharges battery whenever battery runs low
- Range is greatly extended through on board generation and regenerative braking.
- No more down time for recharging nor requires a comprehensive vehicle recharging facility
- On board generator operates at optimum speed, resulting in lower noise, substantially lower emissions and much better fuel economy
- Fuel saving up to 40% compared to conventional diesel coach, additional cost of investment can be recovered within 30 months
- Range extender complies with EURO VI emission standard, reduction of carbon emission up to 70% of diesel counterpart
- Battery life significantly improved with carefully designed battery operation range and charging strategy
- Simple mechanical construction reduces maintenance requirement substantially.
- Gradeability up to 27%, suitable for the most hilly environment.
- Achieving the win-win target by enhancing cost effectiveness and environment protection, “the more you drive, the more you save”.
