What electric bus do we need?


Over the past few years, the introduction of electric buses instead of gas and diesel buses and trolleybuses has been actively discussed in our country. There are two opinions:

  • some say that an electric bus is needed, since it is more environmentally friendly than buses and its quality will become higher, since “demand creates supply", the direction will develop and the equipment will not break. Electric buses have been produced recently, in Germany and in other countries.
  • others say that an electric bus is not needed, as there is a ready-made eco-friendly option – trolleybuses. The trolleybus is powered by the mains and does not need a huge, expensive battery.

There are convincing arguments “For” and “Against”, so we will not argue with these understandable opinions.

Who is for electric buses, and who is against? Why?

Specifications for the 4-door model, unfortunately, the photo shows only a three-door car (1 and 2 photos), the four-door version has a slightly longer trailer.

Very nice bus. I would like to have the same traveled around the city. Most likely the Mercedes badge will be replaced with a glowing city badge, but it’s still cool. Quite beautiful on the inside.
