Electric Transportation and the Trucking Industry

electric transportation updates are flowing out of China these days. The first batch of 438 pure electric vehicles will be launched in Huangpu District and Guangzhou Development Zone, with the area’s new intelligent bus shelter to be unveiled at the same time. 272 electric city buses made by CRRC were added to the existing fleet in Shaoyang, which now numbers over 400. Statistics show that each CRRC electric city bus helps the company cut its fuel costs by 68% and maintenance costs by 50%. A cooperation between the National Intelligent Transport Systems Center of Engineering and Technology and Shenzhen Bus Group has produced 4 self-driving buses, which began trial operations in south China’s Shenzhen, a city known for its high concentration of hi-tech companies.
