Electric Vehicle Bus
- Excellent electric bus engineering that granted the company numerous domestic and international contracts, such as unit orders from Indonesia, as well as developmental partnerships within Southeast Asia.
- Built-in big-data accompanies all Tron-E buses presents a huge competitive advantage, providing customers with important information for better fleet management through data cloud.
- Patented liquid cooling battery system extends lifespan of vehicle batteries, presenting an economical option for customers aiming for excellent engineering at a reasonable markup.
With the rise of global awareness in climate change, various environmental initiatives have observed a steady growth all around the world in recent years. In the area of transportation, mass commuting via public transportation and the adopting of electric vehicles have now become a norm in developed cities.
However, considering the positive impact of both options, would it not be even more friendly for the environment for public transportation to become electric as well? In recent years, many companies around the globe have delved into the idea and emerge as expert manufacturers of electronic vehicle (EV) buses. From within the community, Tron-e is a Taiwanese EV bus manufacturer that has spent years perfecting their vehicles by developing accompanying technologies to enhance the capabilities of the company’s buses.
Green Company with an International Mission
Tron-e is a Taiwanese company established in 2011. With a mission to respond to global warming, the company aims to become one of the leading manufacturers of green energy solutions. The company aims to be an example of corporate social responsibility through their goal of minimizing toxic emissions by means of green electric vehicles.
Currently, the company is renowned for its abilities to integrate existing hardware with green technology, as well as new technology creation and engineering. The company’s products are not only environmentally friendly, but also excellent in safety performance. Moreover, Tron-e seeks to promote environmental awareness with its products to the general public, their clients, and internally to the company’s own employees as well.
Tron-e manufactured EV buses provide clients with a competitive advantage through big data fleet condition management and patented liquid cooling system for vehicle batteries.
As a part of the nation’s green initiative plans, cities around Taiwan have begun to implement measures to elevate public transportation to citizens, by converting traditional buses to electric buses. Most notably, the nation’s Ministry of Transportation has planned to invest a total of 30 billion Taiwan dollars by 2030 to convert all buses within the nation into electric buses.
From among the company’s peers, Tron-E was chosen by the nation’s Tainan City Government as the company of choice for EV buses. The company was selected for incorporating their patented liquid cooling system to keep the operating temperature of battery pack at as low as 10°C below other battery systems. By keeping the temperature at a lower rate, battery packs could last longer, expanding the timeframe for routine replacement, therefore, relief the financial responsibilities of clients.
Furthermore, Tron-E EV buses provide safer and enjoyable experiences for both drivers and riders alike. Through optics technology, the company’s buses could monitor the fatigue levels of drivers, sending warning to both the driver and management companies to alert the driver of his or her condition. Also, with reinforced soundproofing, drivers could operate more comfortably without noise pollution, while commuters could enjoy rides that are more pleasant and calming.
Finally, Tron-E vehicles are operated and managed by the company’s data cloud. Through big data, clients may monitor their bus fleets, and use the data to negotiate vehicle and personnel deployment for the safety of the public should a driver be found to have erratic driving behaviors.
Innovative engineering garner international attention
In addition to providing excellent services to the general public of Taiwan, Tron-E has garnered the interest of other countries as well. Nations such as Indonesia has recently decided to purchase EV buses from Tron-E. Tron-e can make various size of the product, as well as left-hand and right-hand traffics, Indonesia has purchased customized right-hand-drive EV bus rolling chassis based on local regulation by Tron-e, and already got the certification at local.
Tron-E EV bus chassis uses a multi-phase Permanent-Magnet Synchronous External Rotor Motor , giving it higher power and torque density, while the company’s liquid cooling system for batteries provide an operating voltage range between 480V and 700V.
Other countries have also approached Tron-E for other collaborations as a result of the company’s renowned expertise in vehicle engineering.
Currently, the company is working to develop self-driving autonomous buses that could be implemented all around the world. The company attained such recognition by other countries as a result of their domestic success. The achievement of Tron-E was first unveiled in 2018 as a self-driving shuttle bus. Later, in 2019, the technology conducted trial runs in two different locations, once again as shuttle buses. Finally, a plan to put a larger version of the autonomous vehicle has been scheduled for trial initiation in Taiwan’s capital city, Taipei, in 2020.
