Powered by fast plug-in charging lithium-ion batteries, these buses run on highly efficient PSPM electric motors offering a silent and seamless ride for the passengers. Built with high-strength monocoque structures, the buses have long durability and best-in-class comfort.

Speaking on occasion, Mr. Murali Ramachandran, CEO, Celebi India, said, “We are a responsible organisation with a strong focus to build sustainability as the main pillar of our operation. We welcome the government’s decision of reducing carbon emission in the aviation sector. Under this vision of sustainable aviation, we have already implemented solutions like Taxi bots and Bridge-mounted equipment in the past. Now with the addition of 12 Made in India 100% Electric Air-Conditioned Tarmac Coaches, we are committing our support through accelerated efficiency measures, energy transition, and innovation across the aviation sector and in sync with the government across the country.”

Mr. Ramachandran added, “These newly inducted low entry ECOLIFE buses facilitate ease of boarding and de-boarding and are equipped with a wheel-chair ramp for the specially-abled, old & people who are unwell with a designated space for docking the wheelchair. The buses are equipped with all modern features like Intelligent Transportation System, CCTV cameras, mobile charging USB sockets, Emergency safe stop buttons, etc., keeping safety as an important prime factor.”
