Fully electric on the “roof garden of Europe”
It is one of the toughest tests for vehicles of all kinds: the Grossglockner High Alpine Road. Just right, therefore, to put our electrified double-decker bus “Elcty” through its paces.
Under the extreme conditions in the high mountains, the double-decker, affectionately known as the “Barbie bus”, showed what it was made of and mastered the challenging route up Austria’s highest mountain with ease and elegance.
The traditional MAN bus features a new e-drive system from IAV, which can be used to convert diesel buses to electric drive – climate-friendly and powerful at the same time. The Großglockner Challenge has demonstrated this.
