The EV vertical of JBM Auto Ltd. has been a pioneer in bringing products that have been significantly ahead of the products and solutions.

JBM buses are built with cutting-edge technology providing the highest levels of comfort and safety with state-of-the-art features. The Group is committed to combining fuel efficiency with utility and performance using Green & Efficient technologies.

Expanding the product portfolio further, JBM introduced ECOLIFE series, india’s first 100% electric bus, under ‘Make In India’ vision. These buses come in as the ideal solution addressing the growing environmental concerns in our country, ECOLIFE can be customised in 9m and 12m variants.

Almost four decades of strong trackrecord in manufacturing JBM’s focus is to be a one-stop solution provider in the Electric Vehicles segment by providing a complete ecosystem for E-mobility, Electric Bus Battery Technology & Charging Infrastructure.

The Group offers an entire gamut of activities under one roof including design, development, engineering, prototyping, testing and validation through its in-house R&D centres.

Amplifying the E-Mobility Ecosystem

With focus on comfortable and eco-friendly transportation, JBM Auto Ltd. has introduced ECOLIFE. India’s first Zero-emission 100% Electric Bus with the sole intention of transforming today’s customary mass commutation into tomorrow’s congenial eco-transportation.

The ECOLIFE series of buses is being indigenously manufactured at the company’s facilities located at Faridabad, Haryana and Kosi, Uttar Pradesh. Yet another facility with the capacity of producing 10,000 buses is in the pipeline.

JBM’s ECOLIFE is a zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) as it is powered by lithium batteries, which is equipped with fast charging solutions, and runs 150-200 km in 10-15 hours of city bus operation, depending on traffic conditions.

The electric bus technology is adaptable to city bus operations depending on the demographic and geographic conditions. This bus is currently available in 9m and 12m length variants.

"Our focus is to bring pathfinding innovation in EV business. We offer the complete Ecosystem for E-Mobility, thus supporting a green and sustainable environment. "

Benefits of the EcoLIFE Series

HV Batteries

  • High energy density High voltage battery
  • Advanced cell chemistry battery cells for less self-discharge rate
  • Fast charging (up to 5C) HV battery

Traction Motor

  • Traction motor with higher torque to weight ratio

Bus Charging

  • Ultra-fast charging with Dual Gun plug-in charging system

Bus Controls & Safety

  • Advanced technology BMS & VCU to enhance vehicle performance, health & safety
  • Roof mounted HV aggregates prevents electrical HV hazards during water logging

Others

  • Higher energy regeneration during braking decreases average energy consumption per km running
  • Optimized HV battery pack size reduces fare weight and increases passenger carrying capacity (Highest seating capacity for city & inter city transportation)

"Zero noise pollution, 100% emission-free, distinguished by its ultra-modern design with lower operational costs."
