azure_dynamics-logo(Source: Azure) Oak Park, Michigan - Azure Dynamics today announced it has successfully completed the durability testing at the U.S. Government's bus certification test facility in Altoona, Pennsylvania.

The successful completion of this test qualifies Azure’s gasoline hybrid drive system for federally-supported hybrid bus purchases by public transit agencies across the United States.


Scott Harrison, Azure’s Chief Executive Officer said, “This test demonstrates, on an accelerated time frame, the ability of Azure’s hybrid system to withstand the rigors of operating in a demanding urban transit bus environment for seven years.” Mr. Harrison went on to say, “With this federal funded program now in place, U.S. shuttle bus operators can cost effectively adopt an environmentally cleaner hybrid shuttle bus solution.”

Azure Dynamics series hybrid electric shuttle bus uses an electric motor as the only means of driving the wheels. The motor obtains electricity from one of two sources, a battery pack or an on-board generator powered by the engine. The batteries in a hybrid electric vehicle are recharged by the engine/generator (genset) as well as regenerative energy which is captured during braking. Dependant on drive cycle, Azure’s hybrid electric shuttle bus reduces fuel consumption by up to 40%, reduces maintenance costs by 25% and is anti-idle compliant.
