RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The new bus body construction technology was invented in-house in cooperation with Klaipeda University. As a result of various scientific projects, new modular structure and composite material were developed. Modular structure concept simplifies assembling while the newly developed composite material ensures lightness and is ready for re-recycling. Similar modular concepts allowing large part assembly is new for a bus industry, thus widely used in wind turbine and sporting yachts engineering.

CHALLENGE:
While mainstream e-bus producers were only updating their regular buses, our main challenge was to rethink the bus construction, make it ultra-light, attractive for passengers and friendly for the environment.
