      Tata Hispano unveils CNG-Diesel-Electric bus in International bus world fair

      Madrid has placed an order for ten buses last year. The dual purpose served at this Expo is the bus is a medium to showcase the technologies developed by Tata Motors and as batteries are expected to reach a lower price point over the next few years, sending the important message out on to the market that Tata Motors is future-ready.

      Tata has listed the merits of the CNG-Diesel hybrid model in a press release and they include:
      • Electric traction system from Siemens employed in over 2000 buses worldwide.
      • A full electrical model, possible for zero emission operation, for short distances.
      • Common hybrid drive for Diesel-Electric and CNG-Electric, which can be extended to Pure Electric, CNG micro turbine and hydrogen fuel cell buses.
      • Overall cost over the lifetime of the vehicle is lower, due to savings in running costs. Procuring cost is significantly higher.
      • Regenerative electronic braking allows reuse of energy dissipated during braking.
      • Very low and transient engine operation.
      • Electrically driven auxiliary systems.
      • Automatic Electric mode
      • Lithium-Ion battery pack provides better performance compared to Lead Acid pack.
      • Smaller engine gives rise to less noise.
      • Energy management strategies allows tuning to suit specific customer requirements, depending on the operations.
      TATA HISPANO presents the majority of its extensive range of models, making this event an exclusive international showcase for the company. Along with Hybrid model, TH will also present the hybrid Diesel-Electric urban with Alexander Dennis chassis presented at last year’s FIAA fair in November last year in Madrid. Both will have the new area city body design, and they are clear examples of energy efficient options, providing advanced environmental management solutions for transport operators.

      To complete the display, TATA HISPANO is exhibiting its coach range models: the NAYA deluxe coach bodied on VOLVO chassis, the Xerus on Mercedes chassis and the Intea Premium ( RHD) on MAN. With this launch, TATA HISPANO heads the offer in hybrid technologies on offering three clearly differentiated options for urban transport operators: Diesel-Electric Tata Motors chassis, CNG-Electric Tata Motors chassis, both developed with the collaboration of SIEMENS, and Diesel-Electric Alexander Dennis chassis, developed with British Aerospace technology.

      camchennai,

      Any idea about the price of this bus? and any kind of a comparision between this bus and Volvo 7700. This bus seems to offer the additional flexibility of running on CNG.
