SIA “Domenikss” starts selling an electric passenger minibus manufactured in the Baltics. This is one of the first models of its kind in Europe. The minibus is built using the body of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, which is the most suitable model for various modifications. However, other engineering solutions have been developed and implemented in Lithuania in cooperation with SIA “Domenikss” and UAB “Altas Komercinis Transportas”.
This project of SIA “Domenikss” proves that as one of the leaders in car retailing, we are able to create solutions that meet market demand and modern trends. We believe that this product will help our customers, the largest passenger transport companies in Latvia, to develop their fleet and optimize costs by using modern and functional electric minibuses.
The minibus has three battery packs with a total capacity of 115 kWh, and in urban conditions it can drive more than 200 kilometers on a single charge. This distance is sufficient for minibuses running on urban and suburban routes.
The average energy consumption of this electric minibus is 40-50 kWh per 100 km, and the cost of electricity consumed is less than 8 euros per 100 km. Each electric minibus is equipped with a fast charging function (charging capacity exceeds 70 kW). This will allow the batteries to charge in less than two hours. The maximum speed that these buses will develop is 70-90 km / h.
At first glance, electric minibuses are similar to models with an internal combustion engine. However, electric minibuses have several design accents that will allow them to stand out on the road.
The instrument panel has also been changed to give the driver a clear indication of the electric drive. With the help of the mobile application "Can In Phone" it will be possible to control certain bus parameters, regulate the temperature in the cabin, control security systems, etc. In turn, the fleet management program "Xirgo" will allow the technical staff of the bus fleet to see the full telemetry of electric buses in real time on a computer screen.
In Latvia, similarly to Scandinavia and Eastern Europe, minibus passenger transportation is developed, and there is a high demand for minibuses with at least 16 seats. This minibus has 19 passenger seats. The technical possibilities envisage that this minibus will also be equipped with a lift for picking up a passenger in a wheelchair.
