VE Commercial Vehicles Limited has completed a year of a successful run of its 100 per cent electric buses in Kolkata. The Eicher Skyline Pro E buses have been deployed with West Bengal Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation (WBHIDCO) and have served over 1.6 lakh km carrying 1.3 lakh happy passengers till date.
The three Eicher Skyline Pro E buses operating with WBHIDCO, deployed in May 2018, have been operating seven days a week, covering 140 km per day and delivering 98 per cent uptime.
The Eicher Skyline Pro E buses are powered by REVOLO technology, a platform that operates on a lower voltage and allows regeneration to have the maximum possible range with the smallest possible battery.
Eicher has bagged another order of 40 e-buses to be delivered to BEST, Mumbai in this year. The company is also actively participating in tenders floated by various State Transport Undertakings and other government agencies.
The country is at the cusp of a new revolution in transportation and is moving swiftly towards electromobility. The shift to electric vehicle technology have opened many avenues for the economy.
The new developments with the second phase of the FAME Scheme are further incentivizing the move towards Electromobility, with a view towards achieving the country’s 2030 EV Vision.
