“This company operates in the field of design and construction of commercial vehicle platforms of vehicles such as buses, minibuses and vans. Platform design includes body structure, skeleton structure, chassis prototype design and bus engine and gearbox chassis assembly,” said Saeid Shirazi, a technologist working for the knowledge-based company.

“We designed and produced the first electric bus in cooperation with MAPNA Group, which has been approved by the ran National Standards Organization (INSO),” he said.

Referring to the differences in the production of electric products of this company with other companies, he said, “Other companies imported electric cars from China or other countries, but our company did not. We comply with the 85 vehicle standards. We design our own body structures.”

“The first company that designed the body structure and platform of the electric bus in Iran was this knowledge-based company. This structure was unveiled for the first time in Mashhad. The prototype of the electric bus had three doors and the second model had two doors, and its dimensions have also been reduced,” he said, adding, “This knowledge-based company has begun producing 10 electric buses and it is decided to begin its mass production.”

“Batteries for electric buses is a serious challenge because … and of course it is being locally produced by some companies now,” Shirazi said.

“The operational test of the electric bus batteries must be positive, and of course we acquired good results in the country. It is also important to mention that foreign-made batteries were used in the first device we made,” he further said.

“These batteries are rechargeable and have a lifespan of three years,” said the Iranian technologists.
