Ashok Leyland, flagship of Hinduja Group, and ABB Power Products and Systems India Ltd. have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in the public e-mobility space, to expand the eco-system for efficient and greener electric bus transportation systems in India.
This MoU outlines a partnership to develop a pilot electric bus based on ABB’s innovative flash-charge technology, TOSA, which tops up the battery in just seconds while passengers get on and off the bus. This avoids the need to take the vehicle out of service for recharging every few hours or having a replacement bus ready, thus minimizing the size of the fleet while increasing passenger carrying capacity.
N Venu, Managing Director, ABB Power Products and Systems India Ltd., said, “We are pushing the boundaries of e-mobility with our flash-charging technology TOSA for buses to contribute to a cleaner, greener, and sustainable future. The aim is to provide a zero local emission mass public transportation bus system with high passenger capacity. We are pleased to be working with Ashok Leyland in advancing responsible urban mobility.”
Dr N Saravanan, Chief Technology Officer, Ashok Leyland, said, “Ashok Leyland has been at the forefront of innovation and indigenous technology, providing class-leading vehicles that have met and exceeded customer expectations. We are joining hands with ABB to use their renowned TOSA technology on our e-buses to take forward expansion in the EV space.
