BAE Systems, a world leader in electric propulsion systems, unveiled its next-generation full battery electric power and propulsion system for transit buses. The newest system positions cities around the world to get to zero transportation emissions and improve the range and efficiency of their electric transit bus fleets. The technology adds to the company’s 20-plus years of experience developing and integrating electric-hybrid propulsion systems and accessories for transit buses. The Series-EV system builds on that core technology, but eliminates the need for a combustion engine to drive the bus. Instead, it uses electric motors, controls, and batteries to create a clean and emission-free mode of public transportation.

The Series-EV system uses fewer, lighter, and more compact components to make it easy to install and reduce the need for future maintenance. The system’s light weight and reduced number of connections help to make the most of its power and paves the way for buses to travel longer distances on a single charge. As part of this unique design, it also allows operators to customize based on their propulsion or accessory power requirements. Larger buses would require more traction power and the addition of air conditioning on the bus would increase the accessory power needed.

Mr Steve Trichka, vice president and general manager of Power & Propulsion Solutions at BAE Systems said that “Many cities are striving to get to zero emissions with their bus fleets and we are committed to supporting them with all-electric solutions that meet their needs and exceed their expectations. Our Series-EV system provides operators with a highly reliable and low-cost battery electric option that not only gives them more flexibility and capability, but allows them to completely eliminate emissions on their bus fleets.”
