SOLARIS ENOUGH ELECTRIC FORMIC ACID IN HANNOVER TO GO AROUND Test drives of three electric Solaris Urbino 12 buses of the latest generation in the German city. Vehicles with the pantograph on the roof for rapid charging

stra, the municipal transport company U of Hannover, has long pursued the goal of green and sustainable public transport.

Last year, Solaris Bus & Coach won the tender for delivering the entire zero-emission transport system that is not only the vehicles but also charging infrastructure. On April 6, the operator hosted the official test drive of the vehicles: three electric Solaris Urbino 12 buses of the latest generation. The vehicles are fitted with the ZF AVE 130 electric drive with two independent axle-mounted motors, the energy recovering system and the lithium-titanate batteries with a total capacity of 125 kWh. The batteries can be topped up through a

charger which supplies 450 kW via pantographs mounted on the roof. With a single charge, which takes about four to six minutes, the bus can run until the next charging point. There is also a traditional 32 kW overnight charging device. The three electric Solaris buses, equipped with two ramps (an electric and a manual one) and Wi F i , t r a vel along a 16-kilometre route with 42 stops. The Solaris battery buses will use the energy from the network of urban light rail. The results will be taken into consideration when planning the introduction of further electric-powered buses into the Hannover’s transport network.

VDL Bus & Coach is collaborating with Team FAST from Eindhoven University on the development of a bus using formic acid as liquid energy carrier

formic acid. This colorless and YES, pungent liquid was obtained for the first time in 1670 by distilling ants (to

whom it owes the name). A substance that also occurs in nature and that is used for various applications. Team FAST from Eindhoven University of Technology, in the Netherlands, has made a promising discovery regarding the formic acid: the ability to use it as liquid energy carrier. Team FAST consisting of Dutch students has discovered a way to quickly and efficiently transform hydrogen into liquid formic acid and back again into hydrogen. A vehicle fitted with a hydrogen fuel cell and an electric engine will be filled up in quick and effective way. The advantage compared to the use of hydrogen as fuel is that the storage of formic acid is much easier and safer because it does not need to be done at high pressures and low temperatures. In addition, the weights in the vehicle are limited, the the range is increased and the costs are finally reduced.

Last January, Team FAST presented a model car (about one metre long) driving on formic acid that could travel up to 500 km on a full tank. The only emissions are water and carbon dioxide; although the latter should not be taken into consideration as formic acid is produced using CO2 that is captured in the atmosphere making the whole process ‘carbonneutral’. The next step is a concept bus the Team FAST is working on in collaboration with VDL Bus & Coach. The bus that will become the world’s first formic acid-powered bus is a VDL Citea Electric in a length of 12 metres. The modular construction of the Citea range makes it possible to choose from various electric drive systems, battery packs and charging systems. The modular design also facilitates the necessary adaptations for driving on formic acid, without consequences on accessibility, interior layout or comfort. The presentation is expected in the course of 2016.

EUROMIDI TAILORED FOR AFRICA

In Pretoria Iveco Bus presented the Afriway, a new model based on the Euromidi chassis specially developed for the African market needs

new model manufactured by Iveco A Bus debuted on the streets of Pretoria, South Africa. It’s called Afriway and was

unveiled last March at the annual convention of the Southern African Bus Operators Association (SABOA) in Pretoria. It is a bus locally-built in South Africa to meet the local market requirements. Available initially in a two-axle configuration (12.3-metre) with manual or automatic transmission, a three-axle version (14- metre) is to follow. The Afriway is built on the Euromidi chassis while the bodywork was designed by Dubigeon, the longtime Iveco partner. Among the peculiarities of the Afriway there is an engine positioned over the front axle rather than in the front for better wei-

ght distribution, which enables an increase payload, the suspension tailored to enhance ride comfort in relation to the specific bus chassis and then the passenger entrance positioned in the longer front overhang. There is a wide range of optionals. The Afriway will be produced at the ISAW plant in Rosslyn, in the suburb of Pretoria. Service and spare parts will be managed by a group of selected dealers. A two-year factory warranty is offered on the complete bus, and a three-year or 300,000 km warranty covers the chassis driveline. Iveco Bus aims at offering the Afriway for some of the large tenders being issued by parastatal-owned companies as well as targeting tender opportunities across the South African borders.

BMC - Procity 10 LE

6th edition of Busworld Turkey THE took place in three halls of the Istanbul Expo Centre on April 14-17. This

biennial event is devoted mainly to the internal bus market but has always been a showcase open to the international markets, to which the Turkish manufacturers have always been oriented obtaining important results in terms of exports, both as providers of complete vehicles and components. In terms of bus manufacturing in Turkey, the indicators keep being all positive, despite the fact that the internal market still does not succeed in recovering the volumes of 2013, both in the midibus category (7-9 metres and 25-35 passenger seats) and buses over 9 metres (city, intercity and coach). In 2015, the local market has absorbed 3,312 midibuses (+ 9.7% compared to 2014) and 2,032 solo buses (+ 47.5%). Unfortunately, for minibuses, the data provided by OSD (the main source for our tables) since 2012 do not report the internal market volumes any more, in addition not to taking into account the manufacturing and export data of many models mainly based on Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Iveco Daily.

ONLY LOCAL SPECIALTIES

At the 6th edition of the Istanbul Busworld, local industry offers new models to the local market and for export. A few no-shows have been compensated by excellent returns

Bus manufacturing is steadily growing in all categories. There is a constant escalation of minibuses that managed to exceed 47 thousand units thanks to Ford Otosan (45,453 units) that produces mainly for export (84%).

The midibus manufacturing is also going well (+ 34%) despite the drastic reduction (-45.7%) in export revenues in 2015 which is added to approximately -16% of the previous two years. Otokar is the leader in this segment, both in terms of manufactured and exported midibuses. The output growth for longer sizes (+ 36.4%) owes both to recovery in the local market and strong growth in exports (+ 23.3%) in 2015 letting 5,708 buses cross the border. Around 84% were produced in local plants of Mercedes and MAN, in addition to 437 Temsa (in phase of market share recovering), 328 Oto-

BMC - Procity 12 CNG kar (+ 72%) and 152 Isuzu (+ 24.6%). In three halls of the Istanbul Expo Centre, except the specialists in components, there have only been some but not all local manufacturers. If the absence of MAN Türk tends to be a standard practice, the missing stands of Mercedes Türk and Karsan came as surprise. These non-attendances, as well as the lowest total number of exhibitors (145 against 248 during the previous edition) can be explained by the close proximity of the event (in terms of time length) with Comvex Istanbul, the fair dedicated to commercial vehicles and buses, starting on May 21, just a month after Busworld Turkey.

The return of BMC

The return of BMC on market has aroused curiosity among the present manufacturers, as it ceased the activities at the end of 2012 and was confiscated by Turkish Saving Deposit Insurance Fund (TMSF). Thanks to the subsequent purchase by ES Turkish financial instrument and the Qatar Government (interested in BMC manufacturing of military vehicles), the bus manufacturing has therefore made a comeback with a completely new range including vehicles from 7.5 to 18 metres. Five models, all being part of the Procity range, were revealed at Busworld. Starting from 12 metres (11,880 mm in length) there is a super low-floor bus, fitted with Cummins ISB6.7 Euro VI engine delivering 280 hp and ZF Ecolife automatic transmission, also exposed with Euro V engine and in CNG version. In this case, there is a Cummins ISL G 6B

Isuzu and Guleryuz

In 2015, Anadolu Isuzu marks the manufacturing volume increase (plus 29.9%) but decrease in export share, especially in the midibus segment (-78.3%), only partly compensated by growth in solo buses (+24.6%). Six already seen models were presented at Busworld in Istanbul. In the forefront there was a 12-metre city bus honored by the international Grand Jury of the ECW (European Coach Week) within the framework of the Kortrijk Busworld. The interior features information screens for hearing-impaired persons and audio information systems for

visually impaired persons. Alongside, there was a 9.5-m Citibus lowered till the second door, with Cummins Euro VI engine delivering 205 horsepower and a capacity up to 73 passengers. Then there was a 7.5-metre MP Novociti, a 9-metre tourist Visigo with the 3-section glass ceiling and new multimedia system, a classic Turkuaz for mid-distance travels, with its version of 21+1+1 passenger capacity and 2+1 seat layout and, finally, a tourist Novo Lux. Three the Cobra vehicles dedicated to urban transport and unveiled by Güleryüz. The same buses, seen two years ago, were presented with some differences. Cobra double decker with an open sightseeing area was exhibited in Sport version with Mercedes

OM 936 Euro VI engine delivering 300 hp and ZF Ecolife automatic transmission. The bus features the sliding canvas cover, information for 62 passengers provided in 8 different languages via headset announce system at each separate seating place and a manual ramp at the second door. Also the 12-metre low-floor city GD 272 LF with passage to Euro VI is able to feature the Mercedes engine delivering 300 hp. It has a capacity of 28 seats plus 70 standing passengers and wheelchair area. On the contrary, the 9.3-metre GM 220 LE is (still with Man Euro V engine delivering 220 horsepower.

Temsa back to Busworld

After missing the last edition of Busworld

Turkey, Temsa has returned with a range of models mainly aimed at the local market. At the Istanbul exhibition centre Temsa displayed two models presented in preview in March 2016. The first one is a 7.1-metre tourist Prestij SX with a front Mercedes Euro VI engine delivering 150 hp, five-speed manual transmission and 29 passenger seats. The second one is a 9.5-metre MD9 electriCity, lowered till the second door, with a 100 kW electric motor powered by 200 kWh batteries with a capacity of 26 seated passengers plus 30 standing passengers and a wheelchair area. On the contrary, new Opalin and Avenue Plus met with the industry for the first time at Busworld Turkey. The Opalin model is a

TEMSA - Maraton Vip

7.7-metre intercity carrying up to 33 passengers with a baggage compartment of 4.9 cubic metres and Euro VI engine delivering 180 horsepower. The Avenue Plus is the updated version of the 12-metre low-floor city bus, with a new front and rear design, start-stop system for reducing the fuel consumption and Cummins Euro VI engine delivering 280 hp. There was also a two-door version of the Avenue Ä°BUS. Temsa presented two versions of the High decker Safir for tourist services: the 12.3-metres Safir Plus and the 13-metres Safir Vip Plus, both with DAF/Paccar Euro VI engine delivering 435 hp. Alongside with as many versions of the Marathon (Standard and VIP), there was the super high decker which debuted on the international scene at the Kortrijk Busworld last year. Lengths and engines are identical to Safir.

Iranians from Bursa

In 2013, bringing together the experience of Akia (Iran) and Hess (Switzerland) Akia Hess Otomotiv started manufacturing directly in Turkey, in Bursa. At Istanbul Busworld they foregrounded their Metrobus, a vehicle designed for the Istanbul’s municipalities also available in the trolley version. The 25-metre long bus consists of three articulated sections resting on five axles; the driving position is completely separated from the passenger area accessible through four double-leaf doors on both sides, with a maximum capacity of 290 passengers (29 se-

ats). The external aesthetics recalls that of the VDL Phileas. The new versions of the Ultra LF 9 low-floor citybus and the LF 12, measuring 9.5 to 12 metres respectively, were also unveiled at the exhibition. For both of them the Euro VI transition leads to the Mercedes engines and the resulting two ventilation grilles for the tailgate, as for the Mercedes Citaro. For the short one there is the 5.1-litre OM 934LA delivering 210 horsepower combined with Allison T280R automatic transmission. On the other hand, for the 12-metre version there was the 7.7-litre OM 936LA delivering300 hp combined with Allison or ZF automatic gearbox.

Specialists in small-size

As always there were the local body builders specialized in minibus. From abroad only the Spanish Ferqui which marked its presence, however, without exposing any vehicles. High end interiors, special lighting, high-performance audio-video systems and seating configurations link the proposals focused almost exclusively on Mercedes Sprinter and Iveco Daily. The Erener Class II based on Daily 70 gained the attention. Extended up to 8.5 metres, it can carry 24 seated passengers plus 7 standing ones. On the rear overhang the floor is lowered (with recessed manual ramp) and one has to climb two stairs to reach the central corridor.

ON THE ROOF OF EUROPE

3,500 metres above sea level, in the splendid scenery of Mont Blanc, Iveco presents its new Daily Euro 6. Even more performance, low fuel consumption, minimized environmental impact and comfort

more time Iveco raises the ONE bar on its light commercial Daily and presents the New Daily Euro 6

two years after the introduction of the third generation. There is even more powerful model, reducing fuel consumption, main-

tenance costs and environmental impact. It offers a comfortable and silent cabin in addition to a higher level of connectivity with Daily Business Up application. Higher and higher, then, and what better scenery of Mont Blanc at 3,466 meters high on top of the Helbronner peak to unveil last April its new creation. “We have invested half a billion euros into the new Daily in 2014, for the moment we have invested another hundred million, mainly for the engine complete redesign”, - said Pierre Lahutte, Iveco brand president. The 2.3 and 3.0 litre engines are now more powerful developing as much as 120-210 hp with four power levels and a torque ranging from 320 to 470 Nm. èè


The 2.3-litre F1A engine has been reengineered for Daily Light Duty versions and is offered in three power ranging (120, 140 and 160 hp). By using modern materials Iveco has been able to reduce the engine’s weight by 6%. And all this, combined with a number of improvements such as installation of a variable displacement oil pump, further optimization of the cooling and the MultiJet II injection system, enables fuel savings by up to 8% (NEDC cycle). This engine maintains availability of the EGR system, but at the beginning of 2017 will feature SCR technology keeping EGR for those who prefer. The optimized 3.0-litre F1C is dedicated to the Daily Duty Euro 6 versions (180 and 210 hp) and Heavy Duty Euro VI delivering 180 hp. This engine has the SCR technology and new fuel injectors that help to optimise combustion. As for the transmission, the eight-speed Hi-Matic automatic gearbox introduced a year and a half ago, is now a new generation for Euro 6. The gear change is also optimised resulting in cutting fuel consumption. There are two operating modes: Eco and Power, with EcoSwitch PRO function to adjust the engine torque to the load conditions for fuel saving. The front Daily grille creating a horizontal line (usually black) is chromed in order to be distinguished. In addition to efficiency and fuel consumption, maintenance intervals have been extended to 50,000 km through the use of longer lasting components. The optimised braking system with new, brake pads is more efficient either. All this, together with the harmonisation of maintenance interventions resulting in more vehicle uptime, adds up to a significant reduction in maintenance and repair costs cut by up to 12% depending on the vehicle’s mission. The driving cockpit is also gaining more comfort: with the noise level reduced (-4 dB), a new leather steering wheel and a revised layout to include up to 18 storage compartments. The dashboard introduces new features designed to create a professional workstation. The new digital radio integrated in the dashboard provides all the main DAB and FM features with all the multimedia and phone management functionalities expected on a high-end vehicle.

Another novelty is the Daily Business Up, an application that assists the driver with many functions: from improving the driving style to reduce the fuel consumption, till advising on safety and efficiency and connection with the vehicle to communicate with its engine.

They just need to download the app on their device and it will establish Bluetooth connection with the vehicle through the digital DAB radio. Daily Business Up also includes a dealer and workshop locator and a direct link to Iveco Assistance Non Stop, the 24/7 roadside assistance service. Manufactured at the Iveco plant in Suzzara (Mantova), the New Daily Euro 6 will be available on the market in June 2016.

MOBILITY IS SUSTAINABLE

it goes in the famous saying, “ If AS the Hill will not come to Mahomet, Mahomet will go to the hill.” In our own small way we did the same thing. Given the difficulties associated with the test drive on the route usually used by BusToCoach in busy Milan traffic, we jumped at the chance to test-drive the MAN Lion’s City on the streets of Munich, in Germany.

he Lion’s City offers 29 T lightweight and ergonomic passenger seats with upholstery

fabrics and integrated handle made by the Polish company Ster. Additionally, there are 57 standing spaces plus the wheelchair (space) area opposite door 2. Besides door 2, the seats are fixed on raised base in background leftwards and can be accessed taking tree steps under the rear window (the engine-gearbox unit is housed below). In correspondence with the wheelchair space, accessible using the folding ramp with outside door activation switches, the side window in the lower part is also glazed to help brighten up the interior. To complete the interiors, there are the shaped handrails in satin-finish tubular steel, glass partition walls in front of the exposed seats, the LED lighting in the ceiling with two recessed glass skylights. Along the walls, there are also some USB charging

sockets and technical preconditions for fitting a WLAN router. For the interior climate there is a roof-mounted Spheros Revo 32 kW air conditioning system plus the Eberspächer Hydronic 35 heater. The driver’s cockpit is well

protected with a full height rear wall with glazed upper part and side low door. A pneumatic Isri ProActive 2 is a swivel, adjustable, air-conditioned driver’s seat complete with lumbar support. The excellent field of vision is

obtained through two faired rearview mirrors, the right double mirror and the left pillar mounted mirror. Two sunshades on the windscreen and a side curtain are manually adjustable.

Obviously, the defined performance (fuel consumption and average speed) is not directly comparable to the buses so far testdriven (refer to the table at the end of the article), given the vehicle pressure differences and the route characteristics (traffic and number of simulated stops) but still useful for evaluation of the Lion’s City on the basis of the actual operation. Let’s see the results. The chosen route is that of Munich, which goes through the line sections 143, 51 and 160, in reality rather smooth, for a total of 34.11 km, routes simulating stops every 500 metres and the vehicle loaded with 16,340 kg of ballast, corresponding to about two-thirds of the payload. During the test drives made in Milan, the simulated stops were foreseen every 300 metres but the vehicle ballast was, in generally, about 1,000 kg lighter. The results obtained from the MAN Lion’s City were really good: one litre of diesel fuel consumed for an average of 2.6 kilometres with an average speed of 20.6 km/hour. The speed figures reflect the traffic conditions which, we remind you, in Milan do not allow going beyond 16 km/ hour. The protagonist of the Lion’s City good performance is a drivetrain that could deal with everything. The test-driven vehicle was, in fact, fitted with a 10.5litre MAN D2066 engine delivering 320 horsepower (235 kW) and 1,600 Nm of torque, kept at bay by the ZF EcoLife automatic transmission with the latest Step 3 software offering improved gear changing and a fluidity of the steps that make them almost imperceptible.

he Lion’s City powerful enT gine is a subject of our test drive. Mounted in the longitu-

dinal direction in the left corner of the rear compartment, there was indeed the MAN D02066 in vertical configuration with 6-cylinder in-line for a total displacement of 10.5 litres, with a maximum power of 320 horsepower (235 kW) at 1,900 rpm and a torque of 1,600 Nm at 1,000 1,400 rpm. It features the common rail injection, two-stage turbine and a mixture of exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), catalytic reduction (SCR) and particulate filter (DPF) for exhaust gas emission reduction. For not too heavy applications you may opt for the smaller 9-litre vertical D0836 with outputs of 250 or 290 horsepower. The engine and gearbox are accessible not only through the rear door, but also through the outer door leftwards and through the

To draw a general conclusion, it is possible to feel the improvements introduced on Lion’s City in the past three years, particularly on efficiency and fuel consumption optimisation, since the reduction of vehicle weight by approximately 200 kg (the weight of the tested vehicle is 11,810 kg) thanks to a weight-optimised air conditioning (Spheros), as the seats are lighter. Other features are the two-stage air compressor with auto-idle fuel system and improved air flow characteristics, thus, reducing the amount of energy required. Interventions were also made at the level of chassis and body, with sides coated with panels of fibrous compound, resistant to corrosion and easily repairable. As for the doors, available whether in single or double-leaf versions, with exterior or interior swing opening, MAN now caters for the need for a maintenance-free solution due to wear-resistant components and fully encased drive unit thus protected against dirt. As regards safety, the Lion’s City really scores thanks to its torsion-resistant frame, ESP, EBS, engine start lock, emergency brake signal, rain/light sensor and automatically closing skylights. To be distinguished at first glance from the predecessors, the exterior features a black middle front flap on all of MAN’s models, in addition to the LED daytime lights.
