NZ-designed and made e-bus said to be 30% more efficient

Tuesday October 11, 2022 11:34

A New Zealand designed-and-built electric bus has been officially unveiled by Transport Minister Michael Wood, who took a short spin in it on Tuesday.

The Zemtec E-City electric bus can travel about 300km between charges, is said to be 30% more efficient than other e-buses on the NZ market, and was presented at the Bus and Coach Association Conference in Rotorua.

Wood said the innovative new bus “supports Kiwi jobs and Kiwi innovation” and that the move to electric public transport would provide a positive double-whammy of reduced emissions and better air quality.

But the problem will be finding drivers, with Wood admitting he’d call the shortage “a crisis”.
