Irizar i2e Electric Bus In London – Videos
For the past several months London has been testing new all-electric buses – the Irizar i2e from Spain.
These are long-range, 12-meter buses with a massive 376 kWh battery pack – one of the largest in the industry. Batteries are Sodium-Nickel combined with super-capacitors.
Range should easily exceed 200 km (124 miles) in real world driving. Charging takes about 5 hours.
Two i2e are operated in London and probably some in Spain. 6 more are to be delivered to France.
Irizar uses Siemens electric motors (180 kW nominal) and 1,400 Nm of torque.
