China-made electric buses delivered to Seoul

Thirty pure electric buses produced by CRRC Electric Vehicle Co., Ltd. have arrived in Seoul, capital of the Republic of Korea (ROK).

These electric vehicles are to be put to use by the city’s public transport sector, the company has said.

The company headquartered in Zhuzhou, central China’s Hunan Province, said it had carried out market research in the ROK and tailored the vehicles according to local laws and regulations.

The vehicles were expected to help the country better build a green transport system and realise zero emissions in its public transport sector.

Coming as part of an order signed with the ROK for 50 pure electric buses, it took less than 60 days from placing the order to delivering the vehicles, said the company.

The 30 buses that arrived in Seoul are designed with intelligent systems and efficient maintenance facilities including an intelligent parking system and virtual bumpers.

The seats are also equipped with separate USB charging ports while each bus includes twin wheelchair spaces, according to the product developers of the company. (Xinhua/NAN)
