Efficient Drivetrains, Inc. (EDI) has fulfilled its largest order of all-electric buses for Golden Dragon in China. The EDI PowerDrive 6000EV system was integrated into a fleet of 18 Golden Dragon 10.5-meter buses, which will run on urban and rural routes around the city of Nantong, China.
The EDI PowerDrive 6000 received Chinese government certification after undergoing durability testing in late 2015, and has now logged over 3.8 million miles in city bus fleets in China.
Golden Dragon has more than 15,000 new energy buses in service globally. In China, it has deployed new energy vehicles in over 40 cities.
EDI introduced its PowerDrive 7000EV drivetrain system to the US in 2017, and has worked with leading bus manufacturers to deliver electric type C and D buses. Globally, EDI expects to close several hundred orders for bus drivetrains this year.
