At Busworld Europe 2017, Tribus from the Netherlands presents two entirely electric minibuses. With these minibuses, the company provides in the great market demand for emission-free passenger transport. The first electric minibuses will be on the road soon.

The first fully electric minibus is the e-Civitas. The vehicle is based on the Fiat Ducato L3H2 and has a front-wheel drive. The e-Civitas has a 70 kWh battery that can reach distances of up to 200 km!

The floor of the e-Civitas is lowered, it has a fully automated sliding side door and a manually foldable platform and is wheelchair accessible. The new Civitas fits in everywhere with a maximum capacity of 8 passengers (8 seats or 7 seats and 1 wheelchair). Ideal for public transport and taxi, shuttle and airport shuttle services. A maximum of 19 kW per hour charge is possible via a Type2 plug for a loading time of about 3.5 hours.


Op Taxi Expo 2017, 12 oktober in Houten, presenteert Tribus uit Utrecht een volledig elektrische minibus. Met deze minibus speelt het bedrijf in op een grote behoefte in de markt voor emissievrij personenvervoer. De eerste elektrische minibussen gaan de komende tijd al de weg op.

De volledig elektrische minibus is de zogenaamde e-Ducato: een multifunctionele minibus waar Tribus nu al heel veel belangstelling voor ervaart. Deze minibus is gebaseerd op de Fiat Ducato L3H2. De elektrische aandrijflijn bestaat uit een 60 kW elektromotor plus een 76 kWh batterij. Daarmee heeft de e-Ducato een actieradius van ruim 220 km!

De e-Ducato is rolstoeltoegankelijk en biedt ruimte aan 8 passagiers, inclusief rolstoelgebruiker. Ideaal voor openbaar vervoer, taxi-, shuttle en luchthaventransferdiensten. Er kan met maximaal 19 kW per uur geladen worden via een Type2 stekker, de laadtijd is dan zo’n 3,5 uur.

Uniek aan deze minibus is dat het totaal gewicht onder 3500 kg GVW blijft. Dit

Last month, Tribus greatly reduced its environmental impact by replacing all the lights in its factory with LED. At the same time, Tribus mounted 550 solar panels on its factory roof.

The switch from high-energy lights to energy-efficient LED’s has led to an instant drop of Tribus’ total energy consumption of almost 40%. The energy needed for lighting alone has dropped with a stunning 70%. The solar panels, which cover an area of 880 m2, have a capacity of 154.000 Wp, which is well enough to meet the lighting and office needs.

“Many of us engage in outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking and mountaineering,” tells Herman Rigterink, Technical Director, about the people working at Tribus. “We feel a strong, personal commitment to minimise our ecological footprint. Everyone is very excited about our switch to solar energy.”

Tribus will continue to lower its energy consumption. Any energy surplus from our solar panels will be fed

This summer, the Green Heart of Holland will be even greener. Tribus is about to build the first Dutch Zero Emission community minibuses. The electric buses will operate between the villages Mijdrecht and Breukelen and connect this part of the Dutch Green Heart with the railway running to Amsterdam and Utrecht.

The minibuses offer space to eight passengers and one wheelchair passenger and are fully equipped to operate in the Dutch public transport network. The four battery packs are mounted under the vehicle. The estimated range of the buses is approximately 220 km (135 mi).

Syntus operates according to a so-called fishbone model, where the spine represents train services and the bones represent the bus services connecting scarcely populated areas to the railroad network. With the deployment of electric minibuses from Tribus, the service area of Syntus in the Green Heart can be fully electrified.
