The new vehicle is the first electric bus to be registered in Norway
European Cruise Service has introduced Norway’s first electric tour bus as part of its zero-emission programme.
The bus was specifically designed for the cruise industry and Norwegian conditions in collaboration with distributer SeaWalk-Mobility and bus provider Boreal. It has a range of around 350 kilometres and is equipped with a guide chair and USB charging point for each of the 51 passengers.
The bus is powered by a lithium iron phosphate battery and has a charging plug both in the front and at the back, allowing it to charge at most public charging stations.
“European Cruise Service will be a driving force for future sustainable solutions,” said Andreas Storl, CEO of European Cruise Service. “We work long-term regardless of the Covid-19 situation, and for us it is important to use new technology to maintain the momentum in the transition to a low-emission society. In the long term, the goal is for all our tour buses used to be electric.”
