A motorization composed of a powerful electric motor fed by a battery pack of important capacity, the whole associated with a fuel cell of 30kW which allows to increase the autonomy to more than 350 km. 
This is maximum energy efficiency and allows for a long range without increasing the battery pack.
This motorization completely meets the new directives of the Energy Transition Law, since the vehicle does not emit any pollutant: neither CO2, nor fine particles.
The interest of hydrogen is also its ease of use: an H2 bus can be recharged in a few minutes.

An atypical and attractive design

This belvedere accessible by 4 steps, is a welcoming and bright space, which allows you to enjoy a 360° panoramic view of the city. The interior space of the vehicle is very spacious and airy, and benefits from a beautiful luminosity thanks to its glass roof.

A bi-modular chassis

The Businova has an energy pack located at the rear of the vehicle integrating the motorization, the batteries, and a chassis entirely dedicated to the passengers, with a heightened space at the rear of the vehicle.
