With the sector facing increasing pressures to reduce emissions and invest in alternative propulsion, the adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles is only set to grow. The difference in technology from standard diesel buses means that this new generation of vehicles poses challenges that those responsible for their upkeep might not be familiar with.

This White Paper will highlight some of the key differences on the drive train of hybrid buses and the challenges of maintaining their electro mechanical assets.

  • Understanding the differences between diesel and electric hybrid drive trains
  • Why operators are seeking an alternative to OEM maintenance
  • Challenges of hybrid electric drive train maintenance
  • Addressing a lack of maintenance schedules and specifications
  • What to look for in a maintenance partner
