Fully electric Scania Citywide bus on Swiss route
4 August 2020
Scania’s fully electric bus has been in service 15 hours a day since several months with the Baden-Wettingen Regional Transport Authority (RVBW) in Switzerland. Scania has now launched its Citywide e-bus and in Switzerland in carrying out final operational verifications in regular routes.
With four-minute overhead charging at the end station, the bus can drive in a silent electric mode during the 12-kilometres route. “It runs without emissions and is very silent. So, it offers a great driving comfort and a reduced impact on the environment,” says RVBW’s Director Stefan Kalt. “We will definitely go for e-mobility. It will be our future.”
