I do all my daily driving with it. It has seriously tuned drive train.
30 kWh for 100 km. For a 14000 lbs BUS !
Calendar life will be seen. These cells were installed in early 2006.
(February) And used since. No degration on capacity yet. I mean NONE.
All 350 Ampere Horses are there. One cell has bad attitude but I'm
teaching it all the time with CCS.
There are 2 more of these buses and we are going to use them for show
casing the Lithium battery system in daily city traffic. System is ready
but I wan't to tune it still to be even more better.
I was hoping to transform this bus to mobile home some day. Add 1200 Ah
LiCos and Sauna.. of course !
