This morning, Castrosua launched Nelec, the first totally customisable busbody on a Scania electric chassis. This new mobility solution is available in two versions: low-floor buses for urban transport needs (Class I) and low-entry commuter buses (Class II), enabling the Galician firm to enter both market segments, thanks to its offering of solutions that meet the urban electromobility requirements.
This first bus that Castrosua and Scania have developed together makes it possible to offer a solution to the unique mobility needs of each city or customer. Thanks to the highly customisable nature of these vehicles, and the considerable attention to detail, we are able to come up with unique and exclusive designs, not only in terms of the visual and conceptual elements, but also in terms of the way in which the vehicles are equipped. In this sense, Nelec offers a wide range of possibilities, from the number of passenger doors (two or three) to the length of the vehicle (11.5 to 13 meters), while also offering the client the possibility to choose the elements from a wide range of equipment that best adapt to their customers’ needs and habits, thanks to our precise and flexible system.
Although the prototype that we have launched today features 24 seats designed by Castrosua, two places for wheelchairs and standing room for 52, the design may be customised to transport almost one hundred passengers, with a maximum of 34 seats, two places for wheelchairs users and standing area for 63 passengers.
The fact that this model has been completely designed using 3D technology is fundamental, as it facilitates the development of all of the customisation and adaptation options, as well as streamlining the production, repair and maintenance processes, and, likewise, customers are provided with advanced and comprehensive presentations that aid them in their decision-making process.
