TASS – Russian electric buses, tested on the basis of Mosgortrans State Unitary Enterprise, will run on the main routes of the capital. The relevant statement has been made by Mosgortrans SUE press office to TASS.

“Today, the LiAZ-6274 electric buses have hit the M2 route, which connects the western regions of the capital with the interchange hub in the city centre at Slavyanskaya Square. Due to the high passenger traffic on this route, we will be able to evaluate the performance of the vehicles under heavy load. Six months of tests carried out on all stages made it possible for the vehicles to face different weather conditions” – said the chief engineer of the Mosgortrans SUE: Pavel Khmelev, as quoted by the press office.

The electric bus, which started running on Moscow roads, is manufactured on the basis of LiAZ-5292 low-floor, large-class buses.
