Electric Avenues, Smart Cities
Why Electrifying Wins
Enel X has taken technology one step further for electric vehicles by including WiFi-enabled, smart app and voice command options at their network charging points. While the clean energy benefits of electric vehicles are multifold, the payoffs for the passenger are also a win-win. Electric buses silently glide through urban avenues, maintaining lower noise levels both inside and out, making it a wise transit choice for heavily populated streets and neighborhoods. Passengers enjoy a comfortable ride, thanks to pneumatic suspension technology and the positive experience on board has seemingly translated into greater civil respect for the vehicles. Studies have shown a reduction in fare evasion and graffiti markings with the introduction of electric buses in cities. Enel X remains committed to smart city development by enhancing public transport with the delivery of smart recharge infrastructure and energy services.
