Battery warranty up to 10 years

Ebusco offers battery warranty for up to ten years. Depending on the wishes and requirements expressed, we discuss the best warranty with the customer. In doing so we look together at crucial aspects such as the number of kilometres, the load profile, the duration of the concession and the desired EOL capacity. Ebusco’s warranty can extend to 80% of remaining capacity, if that is required. We make an optimal proposition for each case, so that we relieve our customers of all concerns as regards batteries.

Because total control of batteries is a major factor in the TCO.

Ebusco battery technology

We believe we deliver the best battery in the market.

We strongly believe that LFP technology is the best there is in the market. The fact that most of the world’s electric buses (99% of which are operating in China) make use of this technology is sufficient testimony.
This technology is also renowned for its very high level of safety. Ebusco truly believes in this technology and is continuously improving and developing it.

Cooperation with one of the world’s biggest battery makers

Ebusco works with one of the world’s biggest battery makers, together with which we deliver batteries with a high energy-to-weight ratio. This also gives them a longer useful life and enables us to give battery warranties. Furthermore we have carried out extensive tests of chassis strength calculations. The combination of the latest battery technology and an optimal bus design therefore leads to extensive range and sufficient passenger capacity.

Some highlights:

👉 LFP technology (Lithium, iron, phosphate)
Safe, Robust, Best energy density (pack weight), Cobalt-free

👉 Excellent production circumstances

👉 Top class materials (manufacturer owns its own mines)

👉 Peak energy density (150Wh/kg)

👉 Capacity >350 kWh (optional >400 kWh) (our 12 meter buses) and >500 kWh (our 18 meter buses)

Charging
