RAFAKO E-bus

FIRST IN EUROPE ZERO-EMISSION BUS
WITH BATTERY IN THE CHASSIS

WHAT IS RAFAKO E-BUS?

  • First European zero-emission bus with battery in the chassis.
  • A completely Polish project, created for the sake of air purity and noise reduction from the environment.
  • The innovative placement of the battery and the dimensions of the vehicle guarantee its maneuverability, facilitating maneuvering, improve traction parameters and drive safety.
  • The reduced vehicle weight and lightweight design have increased the range of E-bus by as much as 10%!
  • The vehicle is adapted to carry disabled people.
  • LTO cells provide 90% charge after just 15 minutes.

INNOVATION

Innovative solutions used in the RAFAKO E-BUS project make the product
stands out against the competition in terms of parameters and performance

Lightweight design

Execution of the vehicle’s skeleton in self-supporting technology from materials with increased strength parameters and the use of outer shell elements made of aluminum and polyester laminates made it possible to obtain a low vehicle weight.

Battery in
the chassis

The innovative placement of the battery in the chassis lowers the center of gravity of the vehicle and improves its traction parameters, positively affecting the behavior of the bus while cornering and for driving safety

Improved charging
performance

The use of innovative LTO (Lithium Titanium Oxide) quick-charge batteries guarantees fast charging in 15 minutes to 90% of the battery capacity, the number of charging cycles: over 10,000.

PMSM
engine

Multiphase synchronous motor with permanent magnets guarantees higher efficiency and motor overload, as well as vehicle performance and increase the range on one battery charge.

PLACEMENT OF THE BATTERY

Large number of charge
cycles sufficient for several years
of operation without replacement:
10.000 cycles

The modular construction of battery
packs will allow them to be easily
replaced with more modern
and technologically advanced ones.

Fast charging
of LTO battery:
90% in 15 min

Lower the center of gravity of the bus,
improved driving stability, better traction
of the bus while cornering

Bus stability is 20% greater than
the version with batteries installed on the roof
