The Turkish bus producer Karsan introduced its first hydrogen type on the IAA Transportation. The e-ATA Hydrogen is a 12-metre bus for as much as 95 passengers (40 seats) and a spread of over 500 kilometres.

Within the e-ATA Hydrogen, Karsan combines a 250 kW electrical power with a 70 kW gas mobile and a 30 kWh battery. 5 cylindrical drive tanks are positioned at the roof of the car within the rear house, however the Turkish producer most effective states the quantity of one,560 litres and now not the hydrogen capability in kilograms.

At a drive of 350 bar and a density of about 24 kilograms of hydrogen in step with cubic metre, the tank capability could be 37.5 kilograms. For comparability: Solaris offers a spread of 350 kilometres for its Urbino 12 hydrogen with a similar tank measurement. So both the Karsan is a lot more environment friendly or the producer has determined in favour of a 700-bar device – during which case, at a density of 40 kilograms of hydrogen in step with cubic metre, 62 kilograms may have compatibility into the tanks.

The e-drive is meant to be specifically quiet hub motors, the battery works with a lithium titanate mobile chemistry. The hub motors permit for an overly flat and ethereal inner. For the frame, Karsan gives choices with two or 3 doorways. The e-ATA Hydrogen can raise as much as 95 passengers, 40 of them on seats.

The type comes with air suspension from the manufacturing facility and will also be ordered with non-compulsory help techniques and a virtual replicate substitute device. Karsan says it makes use of confirmed parts from the Eu bus provide trade.

The e-ATA Hydrogen, which has now been introduced on the IAA Transportation in Hanover, is in keeping with the e-ATA with battery-electric power unveiled a yr in the past. It’s to be had as a solo bus with a duration of ten or twelve metres (with as much as 300 or 450 kWh battery capability) and likewise as an 18-metre articulated bus. Right here, as much as 600 kWh will also be put in, and the utmost energy of the articulated bus is two times as prime at 500 kW thank you to 2 pushed axles. It’s not but recognized whether or not the gas mobile power may also be introduced within the articulated bus. Solaris introduced such an 18-metre type with gas mobile in a while sooner than the industry truthful in Hanover. (technical specs)
