The new electric, Skyline Pro E bus adds to the successful Skyline Pro range and marks a significant move in the Company's direction to build smart and sustainable transportation solutions for India. REVOLO is an innovative versatile technology that can be applied to a large range of buses and other vehicle designs. It has been designed by KPIT, a global technology company working in automotive and mobility solutions. REVOLO has a unique architecture which allows it to operate on a lower voltage. It also does significant regeneration to have the maximum possible range with the smallest possible battery. The system is modular and designed for Indian conditions. With the electrification technology and the buses being developed in India, these vehicles truly embody the "˜Made in India, for India' promise.

Commenting on this milestone development, Vinod Aggarwal, MD & CEO, VE Commercial Vehicles said: "The country is at the cusp of a new revolution in transportation, and it is our endeavor to provide India with the best mobility solutions. Together with KPIT Technologies Ltd., we bring our core competencies of a strong bus platform and indigenous technology to build the right products for the market. This further reinforces commitment to usher in modernization in the CV industry. The Smart Electric Skyline Pro E buses are certified to ply on Indian roads and we are confident they will bring great value to commuters, city transportation corporations and other organizations 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. Along with the supporting policy framework, it will bring in positive implications across environment, social and economic parameters," he continued.

Kishor Patil, Managing Director (MD), CEO and Co- founder, KPIT Technologies said: "We are very happy to partner with Eicher Trucks & Buses, the leading bus manufacturer in India. This partnership reinforces KPIT's commitment to create sustainable technologies that have a positive impact on our environment. Using our homegrown technology, this electric bus segment will usher in a new era of clean urban mobility. We at KPIT believe that urban mobility needs to be smart, safe and sustainable and all three of these components are equally necessary. The introduction of the Skyline Pro E bus is a big step in this direction."
