"This inductively charged e-bus is going to operate on line 63 in Mannheim as of this summer. We are very happy that we are able to contribute considerably to introducing electric mobility in Mannheim with this innovative project", said Christian Specht, First Mayor of the City of Mannheim, when officially opening the May Market consumer fair in Mannheim.
During the fair, from April 25 to May 5 2015, visitors can enjoy first test rides on the new e-buses. These tours proved already very popular during the first fair weekend – especially the afternoon rides were fully booked.
Passengers on the test rides at May Market in Mannheim were actually participating in a world premiere. The e-buses shown at May Market are the first ones powered by the PRIMOVE propulsion system, following the successful homologation on April 16.
