Bolloré Delivers First Electric Buses In Africa
OCT 20 2013 BY MARK KANE
French Bolloré Group is known in the EV world for its Bluecars, Lithium-Metal-Polymer battery technology and the Parisian Autolib car-sharing service.
But that’s not all Bollore does.
Bolloré is also selling electric buses, which are named Bluebus. Of course they are.
Two of those were recently delivered to Ivory Coast, Africa where they’ll probably become part of Africa’s first 100% electric bus line.
Charging stations were installed at bus terminals, which are powered by 288 solar panels.
For Bolloré, it seems an especially good move to get into Africa because LMP batteries likes heat and need to operate at 60-80°C.
