AEVA - EVENTS

 

 
 

The launch of the first fully electric bus produced in Adelaide's northern suburbs.
 June 23,
2017

I was invited to attend this event on behalf of the AEVA (SA) Branch.
The event was held at ZF Lemforder's manufacturing site at Edinburgh Park, Edinburgh just north of Adelaide in South Australia.


Companies involved in the Precision Buses project are Transit Australia Group, Precision Components and ZF Lemforder.

This event marked the launch of the first completed electric bus.
Another electric bus is nearly completed as well as high efficiency diesel buses using the same lightweight monocoque stainless steel shell.
In fact, they have an order for 50 of the diesel buses from interstate.
The electric bus is now on trial on the streets of Adelaide on one of the free bus routes.

More detailed information has been requested from ZF Lemforder and will be placed here...
