At the moment we are producing Ebusco 2.2 buses. This electric bus has a very efficient drive line and a very large capacity.
To ensure the quality of our electric buses, we design, develop and assemble our buses ourselves in Deurne, the Netherlands.
Practically all parts of our Ebusco 2.2 buses come from European A-grade suppliers.
Since 2018 assembly of the Ebusco 2.2 has taken place in Xiamen, China. There we have a high-tech factory with the very highest European quality standards. A delegation from Ebusco is permanently on hand in Xiamen to support the production process. So, real Dutch quality.
When the buses are practically finished we ship them in containers to Deurne, the Netherlands where we put the finishing touches to them in our own workshop. Final checks are carried out and then we deliver our buses to our customers.
As well as the current model (Ebusco 2.2) we are busy with the development of an entirely new bus: the Ebusco 3.0. This game changer is expected to go into production from mid-2020. This bus will be produced 100% in Deurne, the Netherlands.
Weight is one of the most important components in E-mobility. The Ebusco 3.0 is made of composite materials, which will save about 3,000 kg (!) which is around one third of the total weight of a bus. As a result of this weight reduction a bigger range can be covered with the same battery capacity.
At Ebusco we see a better TCO for an electric bus when the concession period is at least 10 years and the buses drive at least 80.000 km per year. Please feel free to play a bit with this calculator.
