Specialist vehicle importer and distributor BLK Auto is pleased to announce it has further expanded its zero emission fleet with the addition of a new Battery Electric Low Floor City Bus.
The bus has been designed and engineered in Australia and BLK will provide operators with a choice of either a locally manufactured body on the BLK chassis, or a complete BLK solution.
A key feature of this particular model is the positioning of the batteries within the actual chassis, providing a lower centre of gravity and massively increasing both the performance of the bus as well as the comfort for the passengers.
Further, the batteries are protected from the direct sun, thereby extending their life, are well protected from collision damage and have much easier and safer access for any maintenance. Comprising of European drivelines ensures not only comfort and efficiency, but also better aftersales support.
The BLK BEV Low Floor City-Bus has the following specs:
Length: 9 to 12.5Mtrs
Seating Cap: 45*
Standing Cap: 10-20*
Wheelchair Cap: 2*
Battery Cap: 412Kw
Charge Type: CCS2 DC Fast Charge
*Customizable options available on request
BLK Auto Managing Director Jason Pecotic said:
“We are excited by what our team has been able to put together in designing our new Low Floor BEV City-Bus. Improving performance and comfort has been our key goal throughout this process and being able to now have this design go into production is a great feeling.
“We continue to see consumers being gouged at the bowser across the globe right now. The transition to EVs is now an incredibly efficient money-saver and environmentally friendly alternative at the same time, without having to compromise on quality or capability.”
