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

are chargeable through pantograph as well as plug-in charging system. Offering
a completely flexible solution, the electric bus technology is adaptable to the
city bus operation depending on demographic and geographic conditions.
