Ebusco’s new bus smashes the barriers of current bus design in the drive for sustainable public transport. Not only by using composite materials in the main structure of the body, but also in its approach to focus the design on passenger comfort, operator support and Total Cost of Ownership. Ebusco has been able to take the low floor design to the highest level. By opting for two smaller electric motors close to the wheels, there is plenty of room for the drive train. This also allows for more room for passengers around the rear axle, but better yet, a completely flat floor from the driver to the rear seat. The lightweight body allows for the rear axle to have single wheels instead of the usual double wheels.  Next to lower rolling resistance, this provides more room for passengers. Furthermore, the freedom of form of composite has made it possible to make the bus slightly rounded, giving it its spacious design. The Ebusco 3.0 is approximately 27% lighter than the next lightest electric bus of Ebusco's key competitors, enabling a single-charge range of up to 575 km. Further, the Ebusco 3.0 has an estimated average life span of 25 years. Together with its cobalt-free battery technology, the Ebusco 3.0 is a very cost-efficient electric bus.
