–Introducing EVs for Commuting Buses at Chinese Plants–

In China, too, electric vehicles (EVs) are attracting public attention amidst growing interest in resource conservation and environmental issues. Recently, the Chinese government has made efforts to spread use of EVs by implementing an EV rental campaign in the Shanghai International Automobile City, an area in Anting of Jiading District, where the automobile industry prospers.

Located in Anting, HORIBA Instruments (Shanghai) Co., LTD. introduced an EV to serve as a commuting bus in 2015. Examining commuting hours alone, this EV helps reduce gasoline consumption, which amounts to about 2,145 liters (*1) (equivalent to 5 t of CO2 (*2)) annually.
*1 Fuel efficiency is 13 L per 100 km (7.6 km/liter). This was calculated based on the assumption that the bus runs for 33 km one way twice a day (before and after working hours) for 250 days a year.
*2 Gasoline (L) × 2.277 (gasoline/CO conversion coefficient) / 1,000 = CO2 emissions (t-CO2)
