The Tata Motors Ultra Electric Buses which have been handed over to the Jammu & Kashmir State Road Transport Corporation are manufactured at Tata Motors Dharwad plant.
Tata Motors has supplied 40 electric non-AC buses to the Jammu & Kashmir State Road Transport Corporation. Some of these 9-metre buses are moving on the difficult terrains of the Jammu to Katra route and these electric buses will also move along the valleys of Srinagar. 20 Buses in Jammu were inaugurated earlier this year and 20 more buses were introduced at an event held recently.
The Tata Motors Ultra Electric Buses which have been handed over to the Jammu & Kashmir State Road Transport Corporation are manufactured at Tata Motors Dharwad plant. These buses will have a travelling range of up to 150 km on a single charge. The buses run on lithium-ion batteries which have been placed on the rooftop to prevent breakdown due to waterlogging. The batteries are liquid-cooled to maintain the temperature within an optimum range and ensure longer life along with better performance in tropical conditions.
The Ultra electric buses are powered by an Integrated Electric Motor Generator and are built on the existing platforms of Starbus and Ultra. With a max power of 329 bhp and continuous power of 194 bhp, the buses have a seating capacity of 31. The company says that these buses will help in achieving zero tailpipe emissions, and will also help in reducing fuel costs by 50 per cent. There will be 20 per cent better energy consumption and lower maintenance downtime as compared to diesel buses. There will also be air suspension for both front and rear axles to make travel more comfortable for the commuters.
The electrical components have been sourced from international platforms and the buses have been tested and approved by Tata Motors across states including Chandigarh, Himachal Pradesh, Maharashtra and Assam to establish performance in different types of roads.
