Voltabox to supply battery systems to e-troFit for diesel bus conversions

Industrial EV battery provider Voltabox will provide battery systems to retrofitting company e-troFit for the conversion of diesel buses to electric. Voltabox began providing battery systems to e-troFit in 2019. The two companies recently entered into a long-term agreement.

e-troFit’s Conversion Kit 1 contains a modular Voltabox battery system consisting of prismatic cells based on nickel manganese-cobalt cell chemistry. The weight-optimized battery system can be mounted at the rear or on the roof of converted buses. Voltabox says it can deliver a range of up to 260 km (about 162 miles).

Andreas Hager, CEO of e-troFit, said, “Compared to a new purchase, conversion is an extremely economical and sensible alternative based on lower acquisition costs and faster delivery times due to price benefits over time compared to a diesel bus.”
