Hybrid heaters have a key role to play in the adoption of electric buses. How, you ask?
Well, their ability to switch between electric and combustion heating saves battery power, extending a vehicle’s range and making them a more viable option to operators.
As the transport sector’s focus on sustainability continues to grow, so does adoption of electric buses. They have many benefits, but as electric vehicles are still quite a new technology, they also have their limitations.
Current battery capacity means that operators are restricted in the distance a vehicle can travel between charges, and this range is shortened further when auxiliary systems also run off the battery.
