The Hungarian capital’s transport company, BKV invites you to a free electric test bus ride this week in Budapest!
From Wednesday to Sunday, an electric test bus will run on the 15 and 154 bus lines. The Budapest transport company (BKV) is looking for passengers’ opinions, 24.hu reports.
The Isuzu test bus will operate on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday on line 15 between 6 AM and 11 PM, and on Saturday and Sunday on line 154 between 6 AM and 9 PM, BKV said in a statement.
According to the announcement, the 100-seat bus is 12 metres long and has a three-door and low-floor layout. Furthermore, its interior and exterior colour scheme and passenger information system differ from those in Budapest.
The company asked passengers to send their opinions and experiences to [email protected]. Possible criteria includes the number and position of seats, the size of the aisle between seats, the amount of handholds, the grip options, the comfort of the journey, and the appearance and aesthetics of the vehicle.
Not sure who needs to hear this but electric vehicles are no “greener” than their fossil fuel counterparts. 1. A half a vehicle’s “carbon footprint” is generated during its manufacturing, and there is no difference between the vehicle fuel types in this regard. 2. The electricity required to power these vehicles must also come from somewhere and it sure as heck ain’t the totally laughable wind and solar nonsense. These vehicles, therefore, still pollute the environment, even if the pollution is generated indirectly rather than right out of their exhausts. 3. Many of the components of the batteries used in E.V.s (rare earth metals, in particular) are extracted by child slave labor from mines in Africa, which are also devastating to the environment. 4. Those batteries are so toxic that, at the end of their lifespan, they have to be handled almost as if they were nuclear waste. Oh, and they’re not recyclable. It’s amazing how successful E.V. manufacturers have been at buying politicians and brainwashing the public…
