new electric buses into service in Rotterdam


In the Netherlands, public transport are more restrained in the spotlight.
The City of Rotterdam is currently testing in real conditions a new electric bus extension of autonomy (line 44 between Rotterdam and Rotterdam Central Station Zuidplein).
It is named e-busz: it was developed by the company e-Traction. It is the operator RET (Rotterdamse Elektrische Tram) which is responsible for exploiting it.
e-busz based on the model VLD Citea. It features a new drivetrain consisting of a 100% electric diesel engine acting as a generator, wheel motors housed in the rear and two packs of lithium-ion removable Valencia provided by the company.
It can run four hours in 100% electric mode. It also has a system of energy recovery during braking.
If the results of this experiment is successful, the City of Rotterdam will adopt other copies of this electrical bus.
