City of Oslo puts 183 new electric buses into service
In Oslo, 183 new e-buses have been driving through the city since mid-April. 137 more are to be added shortly. By the end of the year, the capital of Norway wants to offer emission-free local transport and equip trams, buses, boats and subways with electricity.
Oslo would thus reach the goal of zero-emission public transport five years earlier than planned. This was due to the fact that the market for zero-emission technologies reacted much faster than originally expected.
Oslo has increased the capacity of the buses and upgraded the bus facilities. The battery pack of the buses has a range of around 250 kilometres.
