Arrival Bus takes next step towards roll-out
Upcoming electric bus offering, Arrival Bus, has made its next step towards carrying passengers on public roads in Europe and the UK.
The vehicle has achieved EU certification and received European Whole Vehicle Type Approval (EUWVTA).
“The Arrival Bus is different from any that has come before, employing technologies developed in-house to create benefits for operators, passengers, and the planet” – Founder and CEO at Arrival, Denis Sverdlov
Founder and CEO at Arrival, Denis Sverdlov, said: “This key milestone for Arrival is a testimony to our innovative technologies and our unique new method of design and production of electric vehicles. The Arrival Bus is different from any that has come before, employing technologies developed in-house to create benefits for operators, passengers, and the planet. Now more than ever, governments and cities must reform public transportation to have the radical impact the world needs today. The team has worked incredibly hard to make this a reality and we are happy to see our unique approach to designing vehicles realised.”
Arrival has invented a new method of design and production of equitable electric vehicles (EVs) by local Microfactories. Arrival’s technologies and components are shared across all its vehicle types, with learnings from certification contributing to all vehicle programs.
The Arrival Bus features flexible passenger seating capacity across the entire flat floor. This is intended to improve comfort as well as creating more standing space. It also includes wrap-around exterior and interior screens, adaptable lighting, a transparent roof, and a suite of digital features. The vehicle is complemented by Arrival’s software ecosystem, which enables full connectivity, digital customisation and deep access to vehicle behaviour and data.
