Ashok Leyland Circuit-S Bus @ Auto Expo 2018
Big shoutout to Suhaas307 for shooting these pictures & his coverage of the Auto Expo. Thanks for sharing!
Ashok Leyland Circuit-S Bus
• Ashok Leyland in collaboration with Sun Mobility (Chetan Maini is the co-founder), is all set to introduce the Circuit-S Bus.
4 steps up to the seating area, this is not a low-floor bus:
The Circuit-S bus ranges from 9m to 12m / 25 to 35 seats. The battery pack is visible from inside the bus (through the window at floor level):
Note the P/R/N/D push-button gear selector:
You can see the swappable battery peeking through the lower window from the outside too:
Though not pictured here, the bus is fitted with a fire detection and suppression system:
On the right is the mechanism for the Quick Interchange Station:
Note the box at the end which houses the mechanism to lock onto the battery:
The arm telescopes all the way into the bus' battery bay:
It locks onto the discharged battery pack and pulls it out:
Even though this is considered a "small" battery by bus standards, it's still huge!
On the other end of the battery you can see the large electrical connectors (heavy amperage!):
The battery gets rotated around…
…and taken along to the charging dock:
