Fully Integrated Electrification Solution

Tootbus know that switching to EVs will achieve their goal to reduce emissions. But a truly sustainable service needs to be holistic and environmentally friendly from end-to-end.

VEV enabled Tootbus to power their existing EVs with 100% renewable energy and is installing 10x chargers plus onsite solar generation* that could power 60,000 KM of bus travel per year.

Tootbus will use the VEV-IQ platform to monitor and operate within their current low power capacity.

VEV is continuing to find ways to optimise and increase Tootbus’ power and charging capacity.
