In an event held at Wadala Bus Depot, Aditya Thackeray, Chief of Yuva Sena inaugurated the first set of electric buses provided by Goldstone Infratech to the Maharashtra State government. The six electric buses were handed over to the Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport Undertaking (BEST) and are all set to ply on Mumbai routes.
The e-Buzz K7 provided by Goldstone are ARAI certified and can cover upto 200 km on single charge at a speed of 70 km per hour. The electric buses can carry up to 31 passengers.
