The Turkish manufacturer Karsan has presented a battery-electric version of its 8-meter bus of type Atak. As with a previous model, Karsan relies on batteries from BMW’ electric car i3.

The Atak Electric uses a total of five batteries developed by BMW, each with 44 kWh. The Turkish e-bus has a total capacity of 220 kWh, which should enable a range of 300 kilometres. The engine has an output of 230 kW and is designed for 2400 Nm torque.

Karsan specifies a charging time of five hours for double AC charging and three hours for DC rapid charging. Double AC charging corresponds to a charging capacity of 44 kW. With a slower AC connection, charging takes correspondingly longer. The regenerative braking system should be able to recharge up to a quarter of the battery while driving.
