Switch Mobility has launched the SWITCH EiV 12 for the electric bus market in India.
Switch Mobility has already received over 600 orders for the EiV, which is available as a low-floor or standard model.
The electric vehicle components of the EiV platform are alike to Switch Mobility’s recently launched European Switch e1 bus. The EiV 12 is also embedded with Switch Mobility’s connected technology solution, Switch iON, which enables remote, real-time diagnostics and monitoring services.
“The launch of our next generation electric bus platform in India is an important milestone for Switch Mobility. Our aspiration is to make electric products more accessible in India, UK, Europe and many more Global markets, thereby contributing significantly to the rapidly growing zero carbon mobility sector. With a strong lineage and proven expertise of Hinduja group and Ashok Leyland, in the commercial vehicle market, we are confident that through more such offerings of electric buses and soon to be launched electric light vehicles, we will accelerate our vision to be at the forefront in this evolving market.”
The EiV platform has been designed and built in India for the Indian market and can be configured for varied environments such as intra-city, intercity, staff, school and tarmac environments.
The buses are equipped with highly efficient, modular batteries with advanced lithium-ion NMC chemistry, specially designed for India’s climatic conditions. These batteries have a range of up to 300 kilometres per day with single charge.
“I am pleased to introduce Switch EiV 12 platform in India which is built on the experience of 50 million electric kms globally. The platform has a unique, advanced, global EV architecture to deliver superior efficiency, safety, and reliability. The products on this platform have been designed with cutting-edge technology to deliver delightful customer experience.”
