Currently, passengers in Moscow are served by about 300 electric buses, and by 2030 the bus fleet of the capital should become fully electric. But it turns out that this type of transport is not as efficient and economical as originally intended
It is curious that reports of the lack of effectiveness of electric buses come from their main supporter – the head of Deptrans and Deputy Mayor of Moscow Maxim Liksutov. According to the Baza Telegram channel, the other day he sent a report to the Ministry of Transport, in which he admitted that the electric buses in many respects lose not only to diesel and gas-powered buses, but even to the tram.
It is curious that one of the advantages of electric buses was called a long service life, which is 15 years, which is twice as much compared to conventional buses. But the problem is that by half this time the electric bus will need to replace the most expensive part of it – electric batteries. This procedure can cost almost ten million, while a regular bus costs a little more, and the total cost of an electric bus exceeds it almost three times.
