Dan, a major transportation company in Tel Aviv, Israel, is the second public operator who decided to introduce the Chariot e-bus in commercial operations.
5 Chariot e-buses commenced exclusive commercial on Line 4 operation on 15th September 2016.
The project features the more advanced Siemens permanent electric motor, with higher torque and higher efficiency.
Line 4, one of Tel Aviv’s busiest lines, is connecting the Central Station in South Tel Aviv to Reading Terminal – North Tel Aviv. The line has a total one-way length of 15 kilometres and 32 bus-stops.
The line is equipped with two 150 kW AC/DC charging stations, each located at one of the terminals.
The Chariot e-buses service passengers 14 hours per day.
Dan decided to purchase and operate another 21 Chariot e-buses with 32kWh ultracapacitors, expected to commence operations as of October 2017.
