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 levels.
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.
