Vinbus wants

The Vietnamese Group Vingroup has announced the founding of Vinbus, an electric bus provider for the Vietnamese market. With vinbus you want to create a modern public transport system in the country with less noise and emissions. The company wants to start service in the Vietnamese towns of Hanoi, Hai Phong, since Nang, Ho Chi Minh City and Can Tho in the coming March. For this purpose, “short term” 3 should.000 electric breads are put into operation. In Germany, however, there are hardly e-buses.

The e-buses come from another Vingroup subsidiary Vinafast. Vinfast has previously made a name for itself as the first large series automaker Vietnam. These are expected to deliver the first (non-electric) vehicle in 2019. Furthermore, the production of e-cars and e-scooters and now also e-buses is planned there. EDAG, which claims to be the world’s largest independent German development service provider, has secured an order from the Vietnamese brand Vinfast for the overall development of the first electric vehicle for the local market.

According to the company, VinFast is currently working on the VinBus factory. To this end, a partnership has also been entered into with Siemens, which will provide the technology and components for production. Vingroup Vice-President Nguyen Viet Quang said, “Participating in public transport with our intelligent electric buses is a very important step, which pushes us forward in applying advanced technologies and creating a fresh and modern urban environment.”

Vinbus is served as a non-profit association. In other words, all profits are fed back into the company and invested to achieve service and development improvements. An expansion of the service area is planned for the future.

A short insertion, but quite interesting in connection with the impact of e-buses. Starting in 2019, electric buses will have saved 98.55 million barrels of diesel in China. Which corresponds to savings of more than 42 million tons of CO2.
