Tomorrow’s urban traffic: BFFT and the “E-Bus-Pro” network are developing zero-emission electric bus
Exhaust fumes, noise and traffic jams: given population growth and urbanization, the central challenge in urban development is inner-city traffic. BFFT, the automotive engineering developer from Ingolstadt, Germany, is working with the “E-Bus-Pro” network on the development of a fully electric bus for everyday use that can provide regular transport services in the city.
It has the potential to revolutionize local public transport in cities worldwide: a fully electric bus for line traffic. It is to be emissions-free and thanks to its low production costs will be cost-effective to be put to everyday use. The automotive engineering developer BFFT is committed to achieving this ambitious goal by 2016. The Ingolstadt based company is working together with the “E-Bus-Pro” network funded by the German federal government alongside 8 German companies and 1 Polish company. Within the network established in 2013, BFFT’s engineers assume responsibility for the integration of components like batteries and their charging and cooling systems in the fully electric bus.
