First electric bus VinBus hits the road in Vietnam

VOV.VN - Manufactured by VinFast as part of efforts to develop a modern and environmentally-friendly public transport network, VinBus electric buses have been launched at Vinhomes Ocean Park urban area in Hanoi.

The design of VinBus vehicles is eye catching due to their green colour. The bus uses electricity as opposed to fuels to protect the environment and the health of the wider community.

The use of the electric buses will ultimately serve to improve public transport services, while significantly contributing to reducing air pollution that frequently reaches alarming levels in major Vietnamese cities.

Each of the new buses will be equipped with modern technology in a bid to improve safety and provide convenient services for passengers on board.

Some of the vehicle’s highlights include an Artificial Intelligence (AI) camera that is capable of monitoring the driver’s behaviour, WiFi connections for all passengers, a location tracking device, an in-vehicle surveillance system, along with a fleet management system.

VinBus has a battery capacity of 281 kWh and is capable of travelling up to 260km at maximum. The battery is fully charged in only two hours at VinBus’ 150kW fast charging station system, using the world's leading charging technology provided by StarCharge.

VinBus Transport Service Co., Ltd. was established in 2019 by Vingroup, the country’s largest private conglomerate.

VinBus operates completely under a non-profit model in order to contribute to the construction of a civilised and modern public transport system, thereby reducing air and noise pollution in the country’s major cities.
