Chariot e-bus ultracapacitor technology has a number of advantages over conventional diesel traction
Length: 18 m articulated
Seats: 39+5 foldable
Disabled seating: 2
Standing room: 95
The Chariot Motors pure ultracapacitor city e-bus features Aowei’s latest and most advanced ultracapacitor. The Higer Bus Company assembles it in its world leading facilities.
Our Future of public transport, ultracapacitor Chariot e-bus is a 18-metre low-floor city bus. It has 39+ (5 foldable) seats, two rooms for a wheelchairs, and standing room for 95, plus two disability ramps. It complies with European homologation certifications, a strict market requirement in the EU, including the ECE R100 energy storage device standard.
The ultracapacitor offers advantages over conventional diesel traction. It cuts operational costs by 80 percent per kilometre. Without a reciprocating engine and transmission, maintenance costs 30 percent less.
Chariot 18m ultracapacitor e-buses is the future of public transport
Technical specifications of Chariot ultracapacitor e-bus
Here are other big Chariot ultracapacitor e-bus advantages:
The ultracapacitor technology by Aowei
With 16 years’ commercial operation in Europe, Israel, and Shanghai, and over 85 million km of roadway, Aowei’s ultracapacitor is the most mature energy store in today’s the fast-charging e-bus market;
16 years of experience
16 years’ experience indicate strongly that the ultracapacitor’s lifespan is comparable with that of the rest of the vehicle;
Significantly less powerful charging infrastructure
This means less costly and requiring smaller available capacity of the power source;
Wide temperature range of performance
The system performs fine in temperatures between -40oC and +60oC;
Highest safety level
Ultracapacitors do not catch fire or blow up in crashes, making them very safe;
No harmful or toxic substances
Ultracapacitors contain no toxins. Their electrolyte decomposes to water or hydrogen/oxygen, leaving aluminium, copper, and steel, meaning no pollution and no hidden disposal costs;
Unsurpassed recuperation levels
Unsurpassed recuperation levels enabled by the ultracapacitor’s ability to absorb extremely high charging currents yield exceptionally low power demand by the vehicle’s power train;
Passenger capacity and autonomy
The Chariot ultracapacitor e-bus has the passenger capacity and autonomy of a traditional diesel city bus;
No need of cells balancing
Unlike fast charging batteries, ultracapacitors need no balancing on a cell level;
Zero defects of UC cells
Ultracapacitors have demonstrated zero defects for almost a whole decade;
98% operational availability
The Chariot ultracapacitor e-bus offers almost 98 percent operational availability.
