Bolloré is introducing longer 12-meter (39 ft) Bluebus electric buses. Before now, the French company only offered 6-meter long versions of the Bluebus.
Establishing production of new buses required an additional investment of €40 million, and Bolloré expects to sell 200 annually.
Range of the new Bluebus stands at around 200 km (124 miles).
Bolloré once again used its LMP batteries, spotted previously in all their vehicles. In this case 8 packs of 30 kWh (net 240 kWh) are used to propel the bus (hat tip to SD!).
Next year, France intends to launch a significant tender for electric buses and it seems that Bolloré is gearing up for the opportunity.
