Temsa unveiled its latest EV model at the IAA Transportation in Germany with the LD SB E, Europe’s first electric coach. In the next three years, Temsa plans to up the proportion of EV production to 50%.
The LD SB E is available in two options of 12 and 13 meters, holding a passenger capacity of 63. It is well suited to provide a comfortable experience on all roads due to its 250 kW motor. The range can go upto 350 km, depending on external conditions. There are three battery power options, 210,280 and 350 kWh. A fully digital instrument panel is also available for convenient navigation.
Temsa has seen several successful EV launches, and this one is likely to follow the same route.
Hakan Koralp, TEMSA’s Chief Sales and Marketing Officer explaining the status of EV manufacturing, said, “TEMSA is a global player that has brought many bus and midibus models to the sector since 1968 and managed to put them on the roads in nearly 70 countries of the world. When it comes to the number of vehicles TEMSA has produced so far in its facility, which is established on an area of 510 thousand square meters, it is over 130 thousand. As of the last quarter of 2020, TEMSA, which operates under the partnership with Sabancı Holding and the PPF Group, is now much stronger and more determined in global markets, together with its sister company Skoda Transportation, particularly with its electrification solutions.”
