Olectra wins 50 EV bus order for Gujarat


Hyderabad-based Olectra Greentech has received the letter of award from Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation (GSRTC) to supply an additional 50 electric buses. Under the order, it shall supply the e-buses on a gross cost contract/OPEX model basis for a period of ten years. 

The 9-meter electric buses shall be delivered over a period of 12 months. Maintenance of these buses during the contract period also falls under Olectra’scope of work. 

With this new order, the total order book of Olectra for electric buses, including the earlier orders, has reached around 1350 electric buses. 

Olectra is already operating buses in the Surat city of Gujarat. With this new order, its fleet size will be 250 in Gujarat state.

The buses run on a lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery that allows a travel range of around 180 – 200 km based on traffic and passenger load conditions. The high-power AC charging system enables the battery to get fully recharged within 3-4 hours.
