AV130 - Electric Drives for Buses
AVE 130 System: Zero-emission driving through the city
The AVE 130 electric portal axle with integrated wheel hub drive is the solution for electric buses, hybrid buses and trolleybuses. Zero-emission, all-electric driving will become possible.

The advantages are:
Driveline designs: hybrid, fully electric (fuel cell and battery), and trolley line
Compatible with the low-floor axles AV 132 and AVN 132
High power density due to integrated, liquid-cooled asynchronous motors
Purely electric/Zero-emission driving over longer periods of time
Significant fuel savings in city traffic
Gradability of 15 % with a single driven axle in articulated buses.
