The development and introduction of electric buses has the capacity to reduce the transportation industry’s environmental footprint and revolutionise the ‘green’ footprint of the vehicles we drive.

There have been few significant changes in bus development over the past 20 years. Yes, emissions have been reduced in diesel vehicles with the introduction of the Euro rating system.

The Euro 6 diesel engines have reduced emission levels but are significantly heavier and require more complex componentry to achieve these lower levels.

To reduce the emissions they produce, the negative side effects include difficult servicing for workshops, more complicated systems for the operator to navigate, and added expenses – operators are required to add AdBlue to all vehicles to get the correct emission levels.
