TEMSA Introduces New EV to Romanian Market

By McKenzie Carpenter Tuesday, February 16, 2021

The transition from gasoline-powered vehicles to electric vehicles (EV) may take some time due to range anxiety from the customer point of view and the higher price point for an EV. These obstacles, however, do not stop auto manufacturers from persevering through the challenges that come with creating an EV. TEMSA, an EV company, announced recently that a new electric vehicle would be on the road in Romania by the end of 2021.

4 New Electric Vehicles in Romania

After a successful EV test of Avenue Electron buses in Buz─âu, Romania, last year, the EV company announced Tuesday it will be scaling the EV business in Romania to include four new Avenue Electron buses by the end of 2021. The new electric buses will be engineered, manufactured, and developed in Adana, Turkey.

Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Hakan Koralp said of the EV company, “We have been developing electric vehicle technologies for many years. With our vehicles that we engineer, develop and manufacture at our plant in Adana, we aim to contribute to the future of transportation and sustainability of our world.”

In addition to the four new electric buses, the business is also implementing two 150kw and 480kw charging stations in the city. Furthermore, the company states that the electric buses can travel 90 kilometers (roughly 56 miles) with a nine-minute charge. Additionally, the electric buses only have one foot pedal for acceleration and braking, resulting in an increased range of 15% and reduces EV maintenance.

The news of the EV company introducing the four new Avenue Electron buses to the Romanian market comes just a short time after the EV business introduced other electric buses to Sweden, Czech Republic, and Belgium.
