Governor suggests considering idea of buying electric buses for Penza
Penza, 7 June 2017. PenzaNews. As a result of his visit to the enterprise JSC "Holding managing company Belkommunmash" in Minsk, the governor of the Penza region Ivan Belozertsev ordered the head of the regional Ministry of Industry to calculate economic feasibility of using electric buses in Penza.
During a trip by an electric bus around the capital of Belarus, the head of the region personally appreciated comfort of the vehicle, which represents a hybrid of a bus and a trolleybus.
"It is necessary to analyse the cost of electric buses and to decide to what extent they are more economical compared to trolleybuses, which operate from a trolley line, and to think of whether it is reasonable to purchase them to supplement a rolling stock of Penza," Ivan Belozertsev said.
He added that at present there exists a demand for environmentally friendly vehicles, which will be very popular in the future.
"We are sincerely happy for colleagues from Belarus who keep up with the times and produce such modern vehicles," the press service of the Penza region government quotes Ivan Belozertsev.
