December 5, 2017 - Two articulated electric buses sporting ABB’s 20-second flash-charging technology, TOSA, went into service today on Line 23 in Geneva, Switzerland.

It takes less than a second to connect the eBus to the charging point on an overhead high-power contact; as it pulls into selected stops, the eBus tops up its batteries while passengers embark and disembark.

The eBuses are 18.75-m long and can carry 133 passengers; 13 out of 50 stops feature TOSA flash-charging stations.

The complete fleet of 12 emission-free eBuses links the airport with the city’s suburbs.
