Arrival introduces zero-emission bus
Arrival revealed a zero-emission bus that strives to "make bus travel appealing, sustainable, and financially viable."
According to the company, the bus is designed with an exceptional passenger experience front of mind. It is equipped with features that promote a positive perception of public transportation and create an environment evoking a sense of space, cleanliness, and wellbeing in a world with a heightened awareness of hygiene and personal space.
“We are very excited to bring the Arrival Bus to markets around the world and make the passenger experience of bus travel a positive one,” said Kwame Nyanning, Chief of Experience at Arrival. “By working in partnership with businesses to develop the entire ecosystem around our vehicles, we are supporting their goals of making public transport appealing whilst achieving carbon neutrality."
The company says it is working with cities to make every touchpoint within the urban transportation ecosystem not only better, but also more equitable and sustainable.
“As Arrival partners with governments and cities to create an Integrated Public Transport ecosystem that supports their net-zero emission goals, the company is also developing cars for sharing, taxis, buses, delivery robots, charging stations, Microfactories, and digital services that enable ‘best in class’ public transport without the need for subsidies,” said Ben Jardine, Chief of Product for Arrival Bus. “This is possible because Arrival’s solutions are intelligently designed, with the Arrival Bus priced the same as a fossil fuel equivalent and realizing even greater savings over its lifetime.”
The Arrival Bus will be produced in local Microfactories which are designed to be capable of assembling all vehicles from the company’s portfolio. These Microfactories are intended to support the creation of market-specific products and the company says they will regenerate regional economies through the use of local supply chains, retention of talent, and payment of local taxes.
