Navya’s ARMA bus can be equipped with battery packs ranging from 16 to 64 kWh and with its top speed limited to 31 mph (45 km/h), a single can charge can easily last a day of driving.
The buses will first operate in a privately owned section of the city popular with tourists. The companies expect to run the trial project for 2 years and expand to other regions.
