Serbian capital’s public transportation company GSP Beograd signed a contract with Chariot Motors from Sofia, Bulgaria, for the delivery of five electric buses. The solo low-floor vehicles will come to Belgrade within 150 days. Mayor Siniša Mali said there are 700 buses in the city streets, spending three million litres of fuel a month. The four kilometre line in the central part of the city will be the first in any European capital to be served only by electric buses, he stressed and expressed hope that it will be possible to buy more units every year.

Željko Milković, head of GSP, said Belgrade will be the first city in Europe to utilize the technology of ultracapacitors with fast charging. The system is used in Tel Aviv and Tehran, while the Austrian city of Graz is negotiating about purchasing buses from Chariot, he underscored.

The vehicles are designed for 80 passengers and outside temperatures from minus 20 to plus 50 degrees. The charging time is 10 minutes, for the range of 20 kilometres.
