JBM Solaris Electric Vehicles
(P) Ltd has begun the trial of 100% electric bus Eco-Life in the capital city
of New Delhi. The Eco-Life trial run was flagged off by Minister of Transport
Kailash Gahlot in the presence of Varsha Joshi, Secretary Transport and Power,
Govt. of NCT Delhi and Nishant Arya, Executive Director, JBM Group and other
Eco-Life, a Zero Emission
Vehicle (ZEV), will save around 1000 equivalent tons of carbon dioxide and
350,000 liters of diesel over 10 years of operation. This is a huge evolution
from how public transportation operates in India. Eco-Life, powered by fast
charging lithium batteries, can run 150-200 kms in 10-15 hours of city bus
operation, depending on the city’s traffic conditions. According to a study,
conducted by The Energy and Resources Institute (Teri), vehicular pollution is
responsible for 25% of the of PM2.5 levels, and incorporating Eco-Life in the
public transportation system could be a positive step in addressing the
pollution epidemic in the city.
