Reducing the capacity of batteries to realize electric buses with spacious passenger cabin

Electric buses that drive on lithium-ion batteries are coming into wide use in order to reduce CO2 emissions. However, several issues remain to be resolved, such as reduction in passenger space and increase in costs caused by the battery capacity to cover a whole day operation. SCiB™ helps resolve these issues and makes it possible to create new electric buses.

Securing passenger space while reducing costs

Electric buses using SCiB™ can be charged in a short period of time, for example, while they are at a bus stop. SCiB™-based electric buses can be designed with much smaller battery capacity than the ones that are charged overnight. Therefore, SCiB™ makes it possible to provide wider passenger space and reduce the vehicle weight and cost. SCiB™ also saves the need for charging multiple buses at once overnight, which leads to reducing the number of battery chargers required.

[Overnight charging EV bus] Battery with large capacity reduces the passenger space - Charging facilities are required for each bus | [Opportunity charging EV bus with SCiB™] More passenger space due to battery with small capacity - Traveling while charging batteries at bus stops (Reduction of initial and operating costs, More passenger space)
