Electric BusesWhen it comes to equipping electrically driven vehicles with conventional contactor controllers or modern three-phase traction technology, Vossloh as industry leader has what it takes.
Trolleybuses worldwide are fitted with traction and control technology from Vossloh. Buses with this traction technology from Düsseldorf operate throughout the world—from Solingen to Lausanne and from Modena to Vancouver and Quito.
Besides the traction units, Vossloh furnishes the components for on-board power supply and air conditioning. The Group designs and manufactures all these components itself to ensure their proven top quality.
The vehicles are growing in length. The world’s first double-articulated trolleybuses now drive in Geneva. To be able to power these heavy and rail-like vehicles safely and all year round, Vossloh has developed a new dual-axle drive. Modern control technology makes it possible to position the two drive axles in different sections of the vehicle and hence without excessive burden on the articulation system.
Vossloh is one of the world’s foremost specialists in electrical equipment for trolleybuses. Electrical traction systems from Vossloh for zero-emission urban traffic offer utmost reliability while making a considerable contribution toward greener public transport. For more than 60 years we are developing and improving zero emission and low-noise traction technology.
Barely any emissions, zero noise: when Vossloh's hybrid-propelled buses approach a stop or traffic lights there is nothing to smell or hear. And thanks to smart energy management, the vehicles consume much less fuel. So, it’s not surprising that these double-articulated buses with their innovative propulsion system are attracting attention worldwide.
