Enerdel (HEV) Will Supply Batteries For Japanese Electric Bus Demo

Enerdel just announced that they have been selected to supply batteries for a Japanese electric bus.  The bus, which will be Japan’s first electric bus powered by lithium-ion batteries, was converted by Tokyo R&D on behalf of Hokuriku Electric Power Company, and is part of Enerdel’s “Green Crossover Town”  collaboration with ITOCHU Corporation.  The bus will begin providing transportation in the city of Toyama.

In a press release, Naoki Ota, Chief Operating Officer for EnerDel, commented:

“Our battery systems were chosen on the basis of performance and flexibility and the fact that they can easily be configured to fit the challenging design requirements in the accessible, low-floor bus design that is becoming standard around the world. We anticipate that medium and heavy-duty fleets are going to be one of the earliest and most important markets for this technology.”
