e Traction Develops Diesel Electric Hybrid Bus

Good thing there are never enough ways to turn green, with the latest among them a diesel-electric hybrid bus courtesy of e-Tractioon from Netherlands which is touted to come with 50% better fuel economy over the existing fleet of diesel buses. In addition, this vehicle will feature a GPS-base dsystem which helps switch off the diesel engine entirely when it is operating within areas that have insane traffic in order to further reduce emissions. So far, e-Traction has been awarded contracts to retrofit up to seven commercial buses with this technology, so we’re keeping our fingers crossed that this will branch out to garbage trucks eventually.
