NON-POLLUTING CITY BUS IS WORKED BY BATTERY

MILJOEVAENLIGA STADSBUSSAR GAAR PAA BATTERI

The battery bus is described concerning design of battery, energy consumption, costs, reach, weight, battery weight etc. Different kinds of batteries, like nickel/zinc, iron/nickel, lead, metal/air, are described. The battery bus can be produced in two ways, partly by reconstruction of diesel buses and trolleybuses and partly by new construction on terms of the electricity. The advantages of the battery bus compared with the diesel bus are less air pollution, longer life time and less noise. The costs are about the same. (TRRL)
