ABC tech team participates in training leading to Van Hool electric bus rollout

Posted on December 4, 2019

A team of ABC technicians recently visited the Van Hool factory in Belgium for preliminary training and product knowledge transfer to support the forthcoming Van Hool CX45E all-electric bus release.

Together with ABC and Proterra, Van Hool continues to prepare for the innovative new model introduction planned for North American unveiling at UMA Expo 2020 in Nashville.

The new Van Hool CX45E combines the Siemens modular ELFA II drivetrain system with Proterra’s industry leading E2 high power, high-density battery system, in conjunction with energy efficient ELFA drive and converter technology to support daily range targets for operators.

In 2020 operators can also expect to see enhanced interior designs onboard the CX series, including the new CX45E model, which integrates a restyled passenger entry, cabin, and restroom, as well as a fully redesigned driver’s area.
