Bluebus develops 6 to 12-meter clean public transit solutions, in cities and their outskirts, using LMP® batteries. Its efficiency is further enhanced through the use of systems that recover energy during deceleration, allowing charging while in use. The features of the Bluebus and its on-board technology, enabling the installation of LMP® batteries on the roof, improve the vehicle’s safety and ensure easy accessibility for people with reduced mobility as a result of its low, flat floor.
Bluebus are manufactured on the Blue Solutions site in Ergué-Gabéric, in the ISO 9001 V 2015 certified Bluebus factory. More than 270 Bluebuses, both 6 and 12 meters, are now in use throughout the world.
The 6-meter Bluebus is an electric minibus with a minimum battery range of 120 km (required for a full day’s use) due to the 3 LMP® batteries located on the roof.
Compact and comfortable, but also bright and spacious, it has room for about 20 passengers and can easily negotiate narrow streets in city centres.
