Project Name: ESD – HYBRID BUS for State Government
Certification: ICAT (International Centre for Automotive Technology)
Type of Vehicle: Hybrid Electric Bus
Vehicle Model: TATA 1618
Repowered By: IX Energy Pvt Ltd
- Categories : Bus
In a commendable effort to revolutionize public transportation and reduce its environmental impact, IX Energy Pvt Ltd collaborated with the State Government to introduce the ESD – HYBRID BUS project. This initiative demonstrates the power of hybrid technology in enhancing the fuel efficiency of existing bus fleets while contributing to sustainability and eco-friendliness.
- Fuel Economy Test with TSRTC (Telangana State Road Transport Corporation):
The project deployed its ICAT-approved ESD kit in TSRTC buses to conduct comprehensive fuel economy tests on various routes. These tests aimed to evaluate the real-world fuel-saving potential of hybrid technology in the context of public transportation.
- Remarkable Fuel Savings:
Over a three-month trial period, the ESD – HYBRID BUS project delivered exceptional results. The hybrid buses achieved a remarkable 26% peak fuel savings during high-demand periods and an 18% average fuel savings across all routes. These figures reflect the project’s commitment to not only reducing operating costs but also minimizing the environmental impact of public transportation.
