Mosgortrans began testing the KAMAZ-6282 electric bus, which runs on batteries. The test bus will run the T2 route (Fili metro station–Alexandrovsky Sad metro station) for two months.
“The recommendations we receive from Mosgortans experts following the testing will help the manufacturer build a production model that will meet the requirements for surface transit in Moscow,” Mosgortrans Director General Yevgeny Mikhailov said.
The new electric bus has a low-level floor, is adapted for physically impaired people and is equipped with video cameras and satellite navigation. It has 25 seats and can carry 85 passengers in total.
The electric bus has a range of 100 kilometres at a maximum speed of 65 kph on fully charged batteries. The batteries are charged at 380 volts.
