The 18m articulated Sileo S18 e-bus is impressive in daily local service. Its high-performance electric drive system allows for a long range and has an above-average recuperation rate, with around 75% of the kinetic energy being fed back into the batteries.

Electric drive with 337kWh total capacity
The single cell loading battery system (SCL) is the core of the drive train. The battery management system monitors and controls several hundred individual cells with a total capacity of up to 346kWh. These power two electric motors on each of the twodriven axles and guarantee a range of up to 337km.

Charging technology specifically designed for the SCL battery system ensures the reliable charging of the traction batteries.
