Paris—Forsee Power, the expert in smart battery systems and a key player in the electromobility market, has been working for two years with the leading Portuguese bus and coach manufacturer, CaetanoBus.
Their 100% electric buses run in many European cities like London, Lisbon or Braga. For its new H2.City Gold hydrogen bus, the manufacturer once again partner with Forsee Power.
Forsee Power develops state-of-the-art technologies that answer all the needs and constraints imposed by the electric bus market: autonomy, power, life cycles, and safety.
