Default Kerala SRTC unveils Electric Buses

Very good development; hopefully this leads to more adoption and hence, better technology evolution.

300 kms at full charge in an ideal situation might probably just suffice for a intra-city bus but the actual utility will be known once they are put into use. 4 hours for charge is pretty good; this can be enable two shifts per day.

Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) launched new electric buses on Thursday. The transport corporation has introduced ten low floor AC buses in its fleet on wet lease, operated using electric power
The bus requires 0.8 unit electricity for covering a distance of one kilometre. The complete charging time of battery takes about 3 to 4 hours and the bus can cover distance of 300 km at full charge
The e-buses will be operated in Pampa –Nilakkal route for Sabarimala season from November 16. After the conclusion of Sabarimala season, the buses will be operated in intercity routes.
