I think it’s kind of interesting watching this segment developing electric busses. These are obviously short range affairs 190 kilometers or so. And obviously not that big of a battery as they mention level 2 AC charging of 8 hours overnight. My guess is they are probably using an 80 amp EVSE which would suggest about a 120 to 140 KWH pack. Some guessing here on my part. Still. Triple or quadruple the pack size and you have the makings of a Motorhome. I don’t the demand is there yet but still. Maybe down the road. Kinda interesting to follow the technology
Heres the article. Enjoy.
