Hybus to hit Delhi roads

Sandeep Joshi

NEW DELHI: Ashok Leyland on Friday said it would hand over India's first plug-in CNG hybrid bus – Hybus – for use during Commonwealth Games that begin on Sunday. Two Hybuses will ply on Delhi roads and ferry VIPs to various Games venues.

Green technology

The latest in green technology for urban mass transportation, Hybus is greener than CNG and 20-30 per cent more fuel-efficient than a conventional bus.

The Hybus intelligently selects the most efficient operating mode to ensure maximum fuel-efficiency. It also has a host of commuter-friendly features including ultra low-entry with kneeling option, noise-free rear engine, front and rear air suspensions and retractable ramp for wheel-chair entry.

Hybus also incorporates some innovative pedestrian-safety concepts including sound and light alerts, a camera-assisted reversing aid for the driver, and night time highlighters near tail lights. The bus front is designed to absorb impact on collision.
