Heuliez Bus, a bus manufacturer in Europe, joins the EV club with an all-electric bus – the GX 337 ELEC.
It’s a prototype and thus we don’t know its exact range as of yet, but according to the press release range should be enough for all-day service and then overnight charging using DC combo fast charger.
Electric motor peaks at 175 kW. The bus can take up to 90 passengers.
