Li-ion Battery Powered Buses Will Serve Olympic Beijing

english.Chinabuses.com 2008-6-03

About 50 buses powered by Li-ion battery will be put into service for the Beijing Olympics this year, running a total distance of 10.4 kilometers for athletes and officials, according to a Beijing official.

All the 50 buses are solely powered by a kind of Li-ion battery which is different from various of existing hybrid electric vehicles, according to Sun Fengchun, an electric car expert with Beijing Institute of Technology. The institute launched the designing and research work of the electric bus in 2000 and so far a manufacturing plant of Beijing Public Transports has assembled seven model buses which have passed tests. The 50 electric buses in Beijing Olympics would be the largest number of its kind in the games, Sun said. The Beijing Organizing Committee has allocated an area of 5,000 square meters of recharge station for the buses and a parking area in southwest Beijing, he added. The Li-ion power battery is used in vehicles with a higher energy density, comparatively smaller cubage and longer span for repetitive use. Moreover, its high efficiency and zero emission have made itself a major subject of battery research and development at home and abroad. Since 2001, two electric buses have been used in 121 route of Beijing bus for test operation.
