Electric bus undergoing tests in Florianópolis, Brazil

Its frame is made by Mercedes-Benz, then converted to electric by Eletra. The body is made by Marcopolo. It's fitted with Lithium batteries and, unlike the trolleybuses with the powertronics supplied by Eletra that are operating commercially in São Paulo, this bus is fitted with solar panels. Maximum speed is governed to 80kmph, to give it a safety margin to operate on a highway stretch.
