eBussy FAQ

You have questions about the eBussy? Here you find the answer! Our team continuously collects the most frequently asked questions, publishes them here and updates the list continuously.

Production is scheduled to start in December 2021 in the following countries with a nationwide dealer and service network:

Germany, Austria, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, France, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland

Other countries will follow shortly.

Outside Europe, our aim is to make the eBussy available as soon as possible. Production is planned to start in the middle to end of 2022.

The modules will probably cost between 800 £ and 11,000 £.

The basic equipment includes 8 battery modules, each 1.25 kWh, which generate a range of 200 kilometres. If you want to extend this range, there is the possibility to buy additional modules. This is possible with two or more modules, which generate a further 2.5 kWh and thus an additional 50 kilometres range. The costs for two modules are around 600 £ each. There is space for 24 modules in total.

You can find a dealer near you simply by entering your postcode on our website under dealer search.

Depending on the module, the eBussy has two to four seats with safety belts. Even though there are four seats, a maximum of three passengers may be transported due to the vehicle class.

An XL eBussy variant is planned for early 2023.

The decision on funding is imminent, but an exact amount cannot yet be determined.

A trailer hitch will be available as an option. How high the tensile load will be can only be determined after the prototyping is completed.

A bicycle carrier will be optionally available.

The Camper module will have a pop-up roof that reaches a height of 2.20m.

The bed will have a lying surface of about L210cm x B130cm.

The Camper Module will have a sunbathing area, refrigerator, TV, hob, fresh water tank and a sink.

The difference is that the off-road version will have a modified chassis and more ground clearance of approx. 8-10cm.

There will be the possibility of financing or leasing.

The eBussy can be charged via household electricity, at the quick charger, via a battery exchange at our battery exchange stations and of course via solar.

The eBussy will have a 230V socket.

The modules can be rented from our dealers, the battery modules both from the dealer and at our battery exchange stations.

The size of the eBussy will be about L365cm x W164cm x H189cm-204cm.

Via a 230V socket, charging will take about 3-6 hours.

You can adapt the eBussy to your needs at any time and exchange the modules independently.

The reservation is not binding, the voucher is valid for the eBussy 'Basis' or 'Offroad Basis'. You can choose the module for this at any time.

The eBussy is built from materials such as natural fibres, composites, aluminium, steel, wood and recyclable plastics. The vehicle is therefore 98%-99% recyclable. This means that we can achieve that the eBussy is emission-free and "green" after less than 10,000 kilometres.

The solar roof is integrated as standard in every version/module and creates an additional range of up to 200 kilometres under the best weather conditions.

A charging process with 230V takes between three and six hours, depending on the battery capacity. Quick charging to 80% takes about 30 minutes.

One battery module will weigh about 8 kilograms.

European dealers will receive the demonstration vehicles in autumn 2021. From that time on a test drive is possible.

The price difference between the standard and off-road version is approximately 2000 £.

We can achieve the specified consumption and the associated range due to the lightweight construction, the wheel hub motors and the integrated solar roof.

A bench seat legally offers space for two people.

The eBussy will be equipped with ABS and ESP as well as a crash box including roll bar like in a racing car.

The eBussy is in homologation class L7e-B2.

The Freedom eBussy "base" offers for the modules a length of approx. 2100mm, a width of approx. 1600mm, a height of up to approx. 1140mm (except the Camper module, which will achieve a height of approx. 2200mm with the pop-up roof) and a loading height of approx. 900mm.

These will vary slightly depending on the module.

The exact dimensions suitable for each module will follow shortly.

Prototyping is currently in its final stages and the completed prototype is expected to be presented during the second quarter of this year.
The eBussy has a basic power of 15kW. The average consumption, based on mainly inner-city use, is about 5kWh per 100km, as it is a light vehicle with a weight of only about 600kg. Thus, the eBussy manages with one third of the energy consumption of an electric car.
We market our discarded batteries to electricity storage farms. There, they are further used for the intermediate storage of electricity from wind and solar energy. They are then recycled by specialised companies.
The eBussy has automatic heating and optional air conditioning. The vehicle will automatically preheat the interior and the batteries via solar power and when it is plugged into a socket or charging station above a certain temperature. This can be set via the APP. The same applies to the air conditioning in summer, if this has been ordered.
The batteries are equipped with protected deformation zones and thus slide only slightly to the side or forward in the accommodated area.
The windows in the front and in the middle of the camper module can be opened. The pop-up roof will have a ventilation function that enables climate exchange.
We use integrated wheel hub motors that are not connected to each other via an axle. Each individual motor has a peak power of <280NM, which adds up to the total system power. Furthermore, there is neither a gearbox nor a differential, which means that the individual outputs of the motors can be applied to the wheel without loss of power.
