Electric bus of type E12, carried by the Chinese company Yutong with the aim of avoiding pollution with gases and saving energy, will circulate in Havana.
The bus, which does not emit any noise, had to be adapted to Cuban conditions, since it worked with 380 volts, while on the Island it works with 110, 220 or 440 volts.
It is expected that it will soon be operational on route 18, from the capital, which begins its journey in the Palatino terminal, in the Cerro municipality, continues through Centro Habana and ends at the La Luz pier in Old Havana.
Yutong started taking buses to Cuba in 2005, with an initial batch of 12 vehicles. Since then, he has sold more than 6,000 units to the island.
