After 1000 days' investigation and 280 days' development, BRT series city bus came out in Zhongtong with excellent driving performance and large capacity. The whole bus frame is made out of an integral body technique to realize a reasonable structure. Each BRT city bus can hold up to 175 people at most. The design of widened bus door ensures that passengers are able to get on or off quickly. For the driving part, we have employed the ergonomic principles and made the operation panel user-friendly.
LCK6180G city bus employs unique bullet-shaped head and streamline body, showing a strong sense of speed and impact. It features large capacity, high speed, low emission, little noise, and low consumption. It is 18m long, 2.54m wide, and can carry 175 people at most. For details, we have designed the windows with a certain slope for the consideration of reducing resistance when the bus is driving. For the bus body, to curtail the bus's weight, we adopt a kind of special high-strength lightweight steel, combined with the advanced full bearing bus body technique of BOVA. That has largely guaranteed the safety of the bus.
For the bus's electrical control system, the application of CAN bus technique brings about information sharing between ECAS, ABS, engine, and hinge plate ACU system, ensuring that driver is able to keep abreast of the running conditions of every part of the bus. The air conditioner with large cooling capacity and the heater system provides a comfortable temperature for the bus. Besides, the ACU articulated system from Hubner is introduced for the bus, ensuring that the whole bus is always kept safe under any cases of steering.
3. High Safety
The bus is equipped with imported non-slip floor mat. The driving compartment is closed type to ensure driver's safety. Additionally, the hinged plate introduced from Germany contributes both to enhance the system's safety and to improve the space utilization.
4. Other Details
Our city bus is penetrated with the concept of humanized design almost everywhere. The large-power ensures a comfortable temperature inner the bus. The inner space will give passengers a feeling of spacious and bright. The top of the back part of the bus is heightened to widen the standing space.
