Eicher Trucks and Buses, part of VE Commercial Vehicles, has introduced Zero Emission Smart Electric Buses to India. 

VE Commercial Vehicles will integrate KPIT Technologies' electrification technology, 'Revolo', on its bus platform, 'Skyline Pro.'

Manufactured at VECV's facility in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, the Skyline Pro E bus adds to the Skyline Pro range and marks a significant move in the company's direction to build smart and sustainable transportation solutions for India.

Revolo is a technology which can be applied to a large range of buses and other vehicle designs and has been designed by KPIT, a global technology company working in automotive and mobility solutions.

"The country is at the cusp of a new revolution in transportation and it is our endeavour to provide India with the best mobility solutions," said VE Commercial Vehicles MD and CEO, Vinod Aggarwal.

"Together with KPIT Technologies, we bring our core competencies of a strong bus platform and indigenous technology to build the right products for the market. The Smart Electric Skyline Pro E buses are certified to ply on Indian roads and we are confident they will bring value to commuters, city transportation corporations and other organisations in this ecosystem.

"Our pan-India network of dealerships and service stations will provide all the necessary service support and maintenance for operating these electric buses efficiently.

"The shift to electric vehicle technology is opening up a number of opportunities for the economy. It is a viable solution to India's depleting air quality and increasing dependencies on traditional fuel resources."
