A part of VE Commercial Vehicles venture, Eicher Trucks & Buses on Monday introduced Zero Emission Smart Electric Buses for its Skyline Pro bus platform integrated with ‘Revolo’ electrification technology developed by an IT firm KPIT Technologies.
Revolo is an innovative versatile technology that can be applied to a large range of buses and other vehicle designs, which allows it to operate on a lower voltage to have the maximum possible regeneration range with the smallest possible battery, KPIT said in an official statement.
The technology developed in Madhya Pradesh is designed to have positive implications on environment, social and economic parameters, it added.
KPIT Technologies MD, CEO and Co-founder, Kishor Patil said, “Using our home-grown technology, this electric bus segment will usher in a new era of clean urban mobility. The introduction of the Skyline Pro E bus is a big step in this direction.”
The VE has agreed to provide all the necessary service support and maintenance for operating these electric buses efficiently through its pan India network of dealerships and service stations.
MD and CEO of VE Commercial Vehicles, Vinod Aggarwal, said, “The Smart Electric Skyline Pro E buses are certified to ply on Indian roads and we are confident they will bring great value to commuters, city transportation corporations and other organizations in this ecosystem.”
