The e12

Electric City Bus


e12 - sx view

The new high-performance electric motors and the battery systems with electronic control, now allows to the electric powered Buses to drive distances absolutely compatible with conventional diesel Buses.

The electric Bus is highly efficient and, although more expensive to purchase, it is much cheaper to manage than using diesel and this makes it very competitive compared to conventional diesel Buses.

CITY BUS - 100% Electric - Approved EU M3

e12 is an Electric City Bus, 12 meters long, can carry up to 72 people.

e12 is Green Friendly - it is Environmental's Friend because vehicle with Zero Direct Emissions, which means it does not emit toxic gases, pollutants or GHG.


e12 -  arrangments

MILEAGE UP TO 300 KM, without interruption of service for battery replacement or recharging (upgradeable with other configurations of batteries).

100% ELECTRIC - equipped with the new high-performance electric motors of 120/220 kW and a large-capacity battery pack assembled with cells LiFeSO4 (individually monitored by an innovative system of BMS) and with a life more than 2500 cycles charge.

HIGH CAPACITY 'OF TRANSPORTATION - 72 people with 27 seats and 1 space for a wheelchair.

OPTIMIZED CONSTRUCTION of the Chassis and transmission for the use of electric motors for a further reduction of energy consumption.

ENERGY CONSUMPTION - The e12-double consumes about 1,1 kWh per Km (inclusive heating) and is therefore much economic than a classic diesel bus.

MAINTENANCE COSTS - between 70% to 80% less, compared to diesel bus.

NOISE POLLUTION REDUCED - enough to perceive the sound of tires rolling.

OPTIMIZED CONSTRUCTION of the Chassis and transmission for the use of electric motors for a further reduction of energy consumption.

EUROPEAN APPROVED BUS M3 - According to the specifications 2007/46/EC as amended by EC Regulation 214/2014.


e12 - charging system

Range and Charging models - We use a Lithium iron phosphate batteries (LiFeSO4), currently the safest and more used cell technology. By uses in a range up to 300 km/day, the overnight charging and a standard battery pack are sufficient. For range above 300 Km the operator can choose to make partial recharges with short stop or use bigger battery packs.

MORE THAN 2500 CYCLES CHARGE - cycle life expectancy), that is almost 5/6 years old and the complete battery recycling at end of life.

Possible Charging models:
- Overnight charging (slow charge): e.g.100A (40 kWh) = 5/6 hours (*)
- Fast charging: e.g. 200A (80 kWh) = 2,5 hours (*)
- Boost-Charging (ultra fast charge): e.g. 500A (200kWh) = 1 hour.

(*) The Internal or External battery charger is included.
