Pre-production samples of the city electric buses, along with other models of long-term transport on display in the capital. In the next year a new type of production vehicles will take to the streets of Moscow. Photo source:membrana.ru
Low-floor Electrobus large class of Engels soon begin to gradually replace traditional bus routes in the capital, where there is no catenary trolley
We are talking about buses built "around" the advanced lithium-ion batteries of the Novosibirsk "Liotech. "On the first such project for Novosibirsk and about the company’s Web site membrana.ru commented in detail. Parachuted Today in the capital of a group of vehicles.
"Key components assembled using modular connections that apart from security and adaptability allows you to instantly diagnose the system for faults and correct them as soon as possible to avoid downtime of the vehicle" — gives the company "Trolza" example of the benefits of the new electric bus (photo "Trolza").
First of all, it’s big city electrobuses, perekroennye the bus brand "NefAZ" and trolley "Trolza."
Company of Engels says that the conversion of the trolleybus in Electrobus (ie car, a moving exclusively on batteries) has been applied asynchronous traction drive with microprocessor control system, which helped to reduce the power consumption by 35-40% compared with conventional trolley.
Without charging a 12-meter "Trolza 52501 Electrobus" is able to walk 250 kilometers. That should be enough for one shift. And she takes charge of the battery at this car for 3 hours.
In 2012, the Moscow authorities intend to purchase about 100 electric buses (the manufacturer is not already selected, it can be "Trolza" and "NefAZ" and someone else — the theme of electric buses picked up a number of companies). For this purpose will be spent 700-800 million rubles.
However, calculating the cost of one unit of "transport of the future" (and it is approximately twice as high than that of conventional buses), it is necessary to take into account, as far as new vehicles more profitable to operate. "Liotech" reports that the cost of charging electric bus large amount of 150-200 thousand rubles a year, and fuel for his brother, equipped with internal combustion engines, will cost 750-800 rubles.
October 26 in Moscow, opened the international forum and exhibition of nanotechnology Rusnanotech 2011. He served as a platform for the presentation of promising models of domestic electric.
In addition to the machines mentioned in the Moscow "Expocentre" can be seen Electrobus small class on the basis of the van Ford Transit, electric vehicle for urban utilities (on the chassis "KamAZ") elektrotraktor (based on "Belarus 920") and small urban electric car sales. All these cars are built on the basis of lithium batteries, the serial production of which is adjusted "Liotech."
Light commercial vehicle on electric power, the same vehicle — the projects of the various partners’ Liotech "- have all chances to get to the assembly line, at least as small scale production
In 2011 and 2012 electrobuses and light trucks to electric should be certified. And at the end of 2012 is expected output electric buses on the line in the major cities of Russia.
The company "AvtoVAZ" has brought to Moscow from Togliatti "lithium-ion car" — wagon EL LADA («elektrolada"). "Liotech" emphasizes that the engineers were able to place traction batteries without disturbing the passenger compartment and trunk.
Cruising on a single charge at the "Hellas" is 150 km in the urban cycle. From ordinary household outlet (220 V, 16 A) prototype charging eight o’clock (ie, per night), what should be spent on electricity worth about 90 rubles
