London's largest bus operator, Go-Ahead London, would soon use new electric double-decker buses in partnership with two giant electric powertrain manufacturers: Beulas and Equipmake.
These two companies said that Go-Ahead London joined them in their new electric vehicle project to deliver all-electric buses in England's capital.
"Equipmake, the leading commercial vehicle electrification specialist, is joining forces with Go-Ahead, London's largest bus operator," said the powertrain developer via its official press release.
The company added that the new electric double-decker bus would be called Jewel E, which is expected to offer a zero-emission drivetrain feature (ZED) and other advanced capabilities.
London's Largest Bus Operator to Bring New Electric Buses
According to Electrek's latest report, Equipmake is well-known for developing ultra-fast power electronic systems, as well as advanced EV drivetrains. On the other hand, Beulas is a coach manufacturer in Spain, which has more than 90 years of experience when it comes to electric powertrain production and development.
Their expertise would definitely lead to efficient electric double-decker buses, especially since Go-Ahead London would help them in their new EV initiative.
On the other hand, Equipmake also claimed that they can acquire the latest TfL (Transport for London) bus safety requirement for 2024. You can click this link to see more details.
