Electric public transport can be a considerable contribution to help our planet recovering from an excess amount of man-made emissions. However, the hype about electric vehicles of all kinds seems to neglect the fact that the selected battery cell technology does have decisive influence on the degree of environmental sustainability of electric vehicles.
Used raw-materials and their geographic origin, production processes, cycle life and recycling or second life considerations do determine whether the carbon footprint of an electric vehicle is actually smaller than the one of conventionally powered ones.
For that reason and in order to offer the most sustainable solution to date, eVersum – on the one hand – chooses battery cell technology that allows to minimize the use of eco-unfriendly materials and chemicals and that – on the other hand – offers an extraordinarily high cycle-life with 15,000+ full charging cycles, thus reducing life-cycle emissions to a bare minimum.
The good news for buyers and operators of eVersum’s electric vehicles including the so-called eTrain and the eShuttle is that the total life-cycle costs (LCC) of the vehicles do decrease as well thanks to the utilization of such advanced battery cell technology.
