ElekBu fair on 4 & 5 February in Estrel Hotel Berlin

Utrecht, January 10, 2020

Tribus will demonstrate two electric buses at the coming VDV Elektro Buses Conference in Berlin; The compact citybus Movitas and the VW e-Crafter wheelchair accessible minibus. A new way of zero emission passenger transport.  

Tribus is known for their innovative mobility solutions and proved their innovation talent last year by launching two completely emission free solutions for the taxi and public transport market. The design of the electric citybus Movitas threw in high as they reached the finals of the prestigious Dutch Automotive Innovation Award early February 2019.

A midi-segment citybus made by Tribus
Tribus designed the whole concept of the electric Movitas and launched the first demo model at Busworld 2019. The Movitas is modular built and available in 3 lengths; 8.20m, 8,95m and 9.70m. The powerful design is lightweight, compact and agile making even inner cities highly accessible. The bus can be fitted with modular battery packs in the floor and in the rear, charged by depot charging or opportunity charging. The Movitas distinguishes itself by features that focus on energy efficiency to maximise the range. A special heat pump uses the warmth of the driveline for the floor heating and the panoramic windows are equipped with well insulated double glazing and UV filter. Thanks to the spacious interior traveling in the Movitas is a true experience. A new way of zero emission passenger transport.

VW e-Crafter for M1 passenger transport
Early 2019 Tribus and VW Netherlands joined forces for developing the VW e-Crafter wheelchair minibus. An important project to enable zero emission for M1 passenger transport. The project turned out to be a great success and Tribus entered the Premium Partner network of Volkswagen. The VW e-Crafter accommodates 8 seats and up to 2 wheelchair places with a practical range up to 150km. You can charge your e-Crafter anywhere. When using a DC fast charger you get a full battery in only 1 hour. The standard configuration of the Tribus conversion includes the lightweight TriflexAIR flooring & seating system with 2 fully integrated wheelchair restraint systems in the floor. A lowered front entry provides access for walking passengers and for people with physical limitations an electric wheelchair lift at the rear can be installed. The VW e-Crafter comes with an European Type Approval and can be driven with driver’s license B.

Both zero emission solutions will be demonstrated at the VDV Elektro Buses Conference in Berlin 4 & 5 February 2020. We hope to see you at VDV!
