Efficient Drivetrains Delivers Large Electric Bus Order for Nantong, China

| February 2, 2018

Efficient Drivetrains

Efficient Drivetrains, Inc. (EDI), a global leader in advanced high-efficiency zero emissions hybrid and electric vehicle drivetrain solutions, announced the successful fulfillment of its largest order of all-electric buses for leading manufacturer in China, Golden Dragon.

As part of the program, the EDI PowerDrive™ 6000EV system was integrated into a fleet of eighteen Golden Dragon 10.5 meter buses.

Golden Dragon has played a key role in evolving clean transportation in China and the Asia-Pacific regions. The company has established a visible presence to its commitment to electrification of its vehicles, with over 15,000 new energy buses deployed globally.

In China alone, Golden Dragon has deployed new energy vehicles in over 40 cities, including Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Guangzhou, Xiamen, and Fuzhou. The new all electric 10.5 meter buses featuring the EDI PowerDrive™ will run in city and rural routes across multiple terrains and climates for the city of Nantong, China.

This order follows EDI’s considerable success in the mass transit space in China—beginning with the first vehicle integration for Ankai transit buses in 2010. To date, the company has delivered large quantity bus production orders across major territories in China with several leading OEMs.

Recently, its EDI PowerDrive™ system hit a cumulative mileage of 3.8 million miles in a commercial fleet setting. The company will continue to supply EDI PowerDrive™ Plug-in Hybrid Electric (PHEV), and all electric (EV) drivetrains and EDI PowerSuite™ vehicle control software to major OEMs as the companies work to rapidly offer electrified buses in response to government mandates. As part of its China bus initiative, EDI has worked to qualify its drivetrain technology with a wide range of cities, allowing the company to compete on a broad scale.

“This is a significant milestone for EDI, and proving ground to our long-standing commitment to transforming the transportation segments with the highest impacts to the environment and air quality. China continues to lead in the electrification of its medium and heavy duty transportation segments, and we’re enabling OEMs to rapidly offer electric options-in both PHEV and EV form factors to the industry.”
