Kerala State Road Transport Corporation  (KSRTC) has launched its first electric bus on Monday in Trivandrum. The fully charged e-bus can cover a distance about 350 Kilometres.

The ticket fare will be equal to city AC low floor buses. KSRTC will carry out a trial run in Thiruvananthapuram for first five days. Later it will continue trial run in Ernakulam and then in Kozhikode.

Some of the salient features of these battery electric vehicle (BEV) buses are reduced noise pollution, disc breakes with anti-lock braking system, kneeling mechanism for person with disabilities, senior citizens and pregnant woman, CCTV cameras  and GPS tracking. The cost of the e-bus is estimated to be Rs 2.5 crore. Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that if the services are successful, they will roll out around 300 electric buses for service throughout the state.
