Abu Dhabi unveils fleet of electric buses

The electric buses will be powered by the fast-charging LTO battery


Abu Dhabi has launched a fleet of environmental-friendly Lithium Titanate Oxide (LTO) electric buses.

Emirates Global Motor Electric, Al Fahim Group and Yinlong Energy, have announced the launch of the LTO electric buses that will be powered by the fastest charging lithium battery in the world – the LTO battery – which can be charged in less than 20 minutes. Its effective charging makes it ideal for mass transportation in the public and private sectors.

The launch in the UAE will soon be followed up with a roll out in other GCC countries.

The bus with T3 rated air-conditioners which can perform at temperatures in excess of 50°C, was successfully tested in Abu Dhabi during the summer of 2020 for battery performance and fast charging capabilities.

The LTO battery is the safest Lithium-ion battery in the world with the longest life span of over 25 years making it the most advanced lithium-ion battery available in the market today.

The green environmentally friendly buses are set to provide significant energy savings and support in reducing the carbon footprint of the UAE. Replacing one diesel bus with an electric bus is the equivalent to reducing harmful emissions from 27 passenger cars driven for one year, and 12,175 gallons of diesel over a ten-year period.

Mohammed Abdulla Abdul Jaleel AL Fahim, group head business development from Al Fahim commented: “We at Al Fahim are committed to investing resources to implement as well as accelerate the sustainability agenda of the UAE leadership. We are proud to play a pioneering role in the roll out of the green fleet of buses in the UAE.”

“We are thrilled to help bring our LTO electric buses to the UAE. Our LTO battery charges in minimal time – making it the fastest charging battery in the world, and we are excited to bring this premier technology to the Middle East,” said Susan Lam, vice president from Yinlong Energy.

“With the new bus fleet set to be rolled out across the rest of the Middle East following the launch, we are confident that this will transform public transportation in the region.”
