Switch Mobility unveils new electric bus

Published to the CV Show website on

Switch Mobility has unveiled the new, fourth generation Switch e1, a fully electric bus tailored to the European market.

The Switch e1 combines a lightweight monocoque construction with a 389kWh battery and ZF hub motors, with fast charging achieved in under three hours and A/C charging in seven hours.

Designed with a focus on passenger comfort, the vehicle is adaptable and has a flexible seating layout which has been engineered to enable easy ingress and egress.

There is capacity for up to 93 passengers – including up to 30 seated.

The interior layout and an ultra-low floor throughout improve wheelchair access which is available through both the front and middle doors.

It benefits from iAlert, enabling remote, real-time diagnostics and monitoring services, as well as digital battery management tools.

There is also Electronic Stability Control, Electronic Braking System blind spot monitoring, collision detection and lane departure warning.

Andy Palmer, Vice Chairman and CEO of Switch Mobility, said: “We are proud to continue innovating the sector with not only one of the lightest widely available buses in Europe, but our first fully electric bus designed specifically for the European market.

“The Switch e1 is the result of learning from the 30 million electric miles our buses have covered, delivering a state-of-the-art transport solution designed with a customer first mindset.

“Switch continues to enable cities to meet net zero targets, allow operators to maximise efficiency whilst minimising costs and ensure drivers and passengers experience unrivalled comfort.”
