Koningshooikt – At the European Mobility Expo, an international trade fair for public transport, in Paris (7-9 June 2022), Van Hool will be introducing a brand new range of 100% zero-emission public buses. With the A series, the independent manufacturer of buses, coaches and industrial vehicles is stepping up a gear on the road to sustainable public transport.
The new A series will feature exclusively zero-emission powertrains: battery-electric, fuel cell (hydrogen) and trolley. With this new A range, the company is building on the knowledge and experience it has gained in eco-friendly buses for public urban and regional transport. In this way, Van Hool is offering a response to the ever-growing demand from public transport companies that are focusing on making their fleet more ‘green’.
The Van Hool A series is a completely new range of buses in 4 different lengths (12m, 13m, 18m and 24m), with 2 to 5 passenger doors available.
