Electric buses offer significantly lower total cost of ownership compared to diesel buses through reduced fuel and maintenance costs

  • Fuel constitutes a major part of the operating cost of any vehicle. Using an electric bus for public transport reduces fuel costs, along with other upfront costs and the total cost of ownership. By 2030, the prices for electric buses are expected to decrease to the price level of diesel fuel buses. Electric buses help reduce 81-83% of the maintenance and operating costs compared to a diesel-engine bus.
  • An electric bus costs USD 750,000 compared to USD 500,000 for a typical diesel transit vehicle. Despite their higher initial costs, electric buses are a cost-effective alternative. They offer lower operating costs due to lower maintenance and fuel expenditures, as well as greater cost predictability due to the relative stability of electricity prices compared to fossil fuel prices, resulting in significant savings over the course of their lifetime. With favorable legislation, electric buses are more financially feasible. Manufacturers of electric buses assert that these vehicles more than make up for their higher initial cost, with fuel savings of USD 4,00,000 and maintenance savings of about USD 1,25,000.
  • Although the components of the global e-bus ecosystem are being implemented in accordance with established government regulations, the immediate challenge of setting up and managing e-bus charging stations in terms of planning, the scope of responsibilities, and operation must be addressed on a high-priority basis to expedite the development of the e-bus ecosystem across the world.
