Identification

Letenda designed a new bus in collaboration with the operators. It is developed around an electric propulsion system in order to improve its energy efficiency. This bus is a vehicle designed to be a zero emission vehicle in all seasons because it does not use diesel for heating in winter conditions unlike the competition. Starting from scratch to design this bus, the engineering team found concrete and efficient solutions to meet the requirements of transport operators in terms of accessibility, safety and comfort of users and drivers. Letenda's ambition is to revolutionize the bus market by offering a solution to ecological and economic problems.

Letenda midibus is specifically designed for an electric propulsion mode. In collaboration with the operators, Letenda has designed a bus that meets their expectations: high performance, flat floor, better visibility for the conductor, and better thermal insulation.
