The brake manufacturer Knorr-Bremse is to equip the entire electric bus fleet of the leading Chinese bus manufacturer Yutong with electronic braking systems (EBS). These brake control systems have already proven a success in one model of electric bus from "one of the world's leading bus manufacturers" in public transport in China.
Knorr-Bremse announced on Tuesday in Munich that its EBS will now be installed as standard in all of the manufacturer's new electric buses. The company did not provide any information on the financial scope of the deal.
The electronic control system shortens the response times and braking distances of buses and trucks, regardless of the type of engine. Yutong sold 61,000 buses worldwide last year, almost twice as many as the European market leader Daimler.
