The eBussed project, amongst other aims, identifies new innovative practices in the electric bus deployment. eBussed partner University of Applied Science Utrecht paid a visit to the Tribus company, a local bus manufacturer in Utrecht. Tribus manufactures a wide array of wheelchair accessible (e-)minibuses and vehicles for the taxi, public transport, and shuttle services.

Tribus recently started developing an energy-efficient, modular and 100 % electric city bus called Movitas for public transport and parcel deliveries. The city bus has interesting features to minimize energy consumption, for example, seat heating, double glazing, air curtains, four-wheel steering, preconditioning of bus and batteries.
