Every year, since 2002, the European Mobility Week is organised from 16 to 22 September and is dedicated to sustainable mobility. The campaign is accompanied by a one-day event called “In town, without my car”.
Yesterday was presented the first in Ukraine electricbusElectron E 19101 made at Lviv company “ElektronTrans.” It costs 9 million UAH. This is an environmentally friendly mode of transport, which is powered only by electricity, can carry up to 100 passengers and has a maximum speed up to 70 km/hour. It can run for 200 km. without recharging.
Today we present the first in Ukraine electric bus. What is unique about it? In one shift a bus, spends approximately 2.5 thousand UAH on diesel. elektrobus – only 250 UAH. This is 10 times cheaper. Plus no filters are needed, plus ecology. We would very much like to see Ukrainian cities to order high quality equipment from our Ukrainian producer. Today in Lviv we have trams, and trolleybuses, and elektrobus and by the end of the year, we here at “Electron”, will have sophisticated Ukrainian buses. There is nothing of the kind in Ukraine. Lviv makes the first production order. Next year we will start implementation of the e-ticket. To take away all the cash from the circulation, there should only be electronic ticket. Therefore, innovation in every field, so that people can feel comfortable.
Now elektrobus passes certification and testing on the roads of the city. I think that by the end of this year it has to be on one of the routes, and we will consult with the community, which is better. I tend to think that elektrobus will be on “Lvivelektrotrans” balance, the cost of the ride will be the same as that of the troleybusses.
