Hyundai Unleashes its New Electric Bus


Hyundai, a conglomerate company located in South Korea has unleashed its first electric bus. The bus was called Elec City.

The new highway bus has 256KWh battery capacity. During testing of the bus it was unveiled that the bus can run 290 kilometer which is close  to 180 kilometer when it is fully charged. The battery charges just for an hour. This means that the bus can run from Ikorodu to CMS twice, if it is brought to Lagos, Nigeria.

According to the Verge, Electric bus are more efficient than the traditional bus although it is very expensive for now. Also, it will not be easy to sell the Hyundia version of this bus in the US, since it may not be able to compete with America electric bus manufacturer, Proterra which uses 660kWh of battery.

In Nigeria, especially in Lagos and the FCT, it is time to look at this efficient means of intra-city transportation. Nigeria transport system is known for being affected by fuel hike and scarcity. Introducing electric buses will increase cost efficiency and  cummuters' value for their money.
