Electric Articulated Buses Being Tested in Gothenburg, Sweden
Two prototype all-electric articulated buses will be tested on part of route 16, which has frequent departures and carries a large number of passengers. The trial is being run within the framework of ElectriCity, which since 2015 has been running electrified buses in demo traffic on route 55 in Gothenburg. "The new all-electric buses are far quieter than diesel buses, they emit absolutely no exhaust gases, and they are designed for smooth and comfortable travel. They will also form an important basis for decisions about future investments in electric buses," says Lars Holmin, chairman of public transport company Västtrafik. The two new additions that will become operational this summer are 18.7-metre-long articulated buses with space for up to 135 passengers, of whom 38 seated.
