Electric Bus Development

What happened to the development of an electric bus at Pontardawe?

The Neath Ferret can reveal that an electric bus was being developed at Pontardawe until the firm went bankrupt.    The bus was designed to be powered by batteries with a boost system at passenger bus stops.    It was a wire-less inductive charging system that topped up the batteries until the next stop.   The development contract was taken out by an unknown company with the Pontardawe firm as a protype for an innovative form of transport for around a town or city.

Does any reader know anything about this secret project?   If so we would like to know more about it.

The latest news from VW for the future of motoring is a range of electric and hybrid cars from the city proof e-up! to the refined and practical e-Golf.
