so Far, the electric buses were in the LOB is more of a toy. Four piece not curved for a few years between Südkreuz and Zoo, through the neighborhood - if they were broken. But now it is time to start properly. Two Federal Ministers, and two of Berlin's Senator of the interior, visited on Wednesday afternoon the BVG and visited the first of the new battery buses. The Polish manufacturer Solaris, and Mercedes Benz presented in a Wedding the first shipped models, this year 30 pieces to go away by Berlin. By 2021 225 E-buses will be in use.
The single-Decker are twelve meters short and have space, such as diesel buses for 65 passengers. You should still be in this year on the line 142 (Leopold Platz-Hauptbahnhof-Ostbahnhof). The 15 vehicles of the types Urbino 12 electric (Solaris) and eCitaro (Mercedes) are charged in the Depot via a cable. The models went on the line 204, had a toothbrush, an inductive technique to the Terminus, similar to an electric. As we know, had not proven this.
the Federal environment Minister, Svenja Schulze (SPD) and Federal Minister of transport, Andreas Scheuer (CSU) said on Wednesday that the Federal government would pay 48 million euros in funding. 35 million will come from the pot of Schulze, 13 million are shy, only for the monoplane. The Land of Berlin supports the LOB with the 58 million euros to 2021, in the two years 2022 and 2023 an additional 48 million euros to follow. Simplified: The BVG pays, what would be the cost of a comparable diesel bus, the Federal government pays for the Rest.
BVG Boss Sigrid Nikutta thanked all for the money. Up to the year 2030, the entire bus fleet of the LPP is to drive electric. Currently, about 1,500 diesel buses exhaust bubbles in the air in Berlin. Alone, the BVG could not cope with the transition. Because the tax is: of The electric vehicles cost the BVG 810 million euros, they are significantly more expensive than Conventional. An additional 570 million euros to invest, the BVG in the charging stations, the operation stations. Scheuer invited other German cities, Berlin. "As of today, applications for the procurement of electric vehicles and the charging infrastructure can be submitted," said shy in the wedding the bus depot. 90 million euros are available for Berlin, with a 13 million the largest share.daily mirror people Free
environment Minister Schulze order called the transition to the BVG "a sign for the whole of Germany," other cities would follow suit, guaranteed. Schulze called the three main advantages of electric buses: "you will travel CO2-free, they are low in pollutants and significantly quieter."
Chinese city of Shenzhen as a model
The disadvantages have not been addressed this afternoon. The buses are not only significantly more expensive than conventional technology, they also have a range of 150 kilometers and are therefore limited, so certain lines can be used. As the monoplane must be charged overnight in the Depot, must be deducted from the 150 km of the empty trips to the Depot. Currently, Berlin buses, depending on the line up to 420 miles a day on the road. Even on the Kiezlinie 204 the new buses could not be used, there is a circulation of which is 170 kilometers long. Therefore, the BVG wants to test a different technique: 2020, the first 15 electric articulated Solaris buses will be supplied, in which the fast charging by current collector (within minutes) at the stop tested. This technique promotes the Ministry of transport with a further six million euros.
Senator Regine Günther (independent, Green) and the economy, Senator Ramona Pop, called turning the switch to electric vehicles is "an important element of Transport", Berlin, to set in order for the mobility law. 2018 had looked Günther and Nikutta in the world capital of electric mobility: Shenzhen in China has changed within a few years, its entire fleet on electricity. Of 17,000 buses in the metropolis are now electric. The want to imitate Berlin now.More about

in 2018 gets the BVG had ordered 950 diesel buses, it was the largest order in the history of the company. An obligation does not exist but. The procurement is dependent on the development of the market for E-buses, had Nikutta said at the time of ordering. The faster the vehicles are Mature, the less conventionally-powered vehicles would be recalled. Now come to this.
