Based on the proven performance of the LFS platform, the LFS HEV®
(Hybrid Electric Vehicle) upgrades its already advanced fuel-efficient
engineering by adding a powerful ultra-low emissions hybrid drive to cut
fuel and maintenance costs even further.
In optimal conditions, hybrid drives can offer approximately 30% lower fuel consumption
and greenhouse gas emissions while using existing infrastructures. It
also has been proven that hybrids help save on engine and brake
maintenance costs while providing a significant reduction in noise
Nova Bus offers two different types of hybrid systems: parallel and
series. In both parallel and series vehicles, braking energy normally
lost as heat is recuperated through a generator and stored in the
rooftop batteries. That’s why hybrid technologies are best suited for
frequent stop-and-go conditions.
