Equipmake offering double deck ebus chassis to body builders


By Jim Gibbins - 1st November 2019

UK / Belgium - Automotive electrification company, Equipmake Ltd of Snetterton, Norwich, UK, revealed its latest version of an innovative electric bus platform – a new low floor chassis designed to make zero emission double deck buses more cost-effective and efficient at Busworld Europe, last month. The low floor double deck bus chassis, produced by Agrale, follows on from Equipmake’s existing low-entry EBus powertrain – designed for single deck buses – which has been in testing for the last 12 months and enters in-service trials next year. 

All EBus drivetrains feature two APM200 motors, Equipmake’s bespoke-architecture electric motor, developed from F1 technology and believed to be the highest power/torque dense production automotive electric motor available. They each produce 220kW and 450Nm of torque and are mated to a two-speed gearbox. Proven Semikron SKAI inverters and the latest generation lithium-ion battery cells complete the fully integrated platform.
