HESS | Motion & Emotion


For cities worth living in

Due to their electric drive systems, trolley buses are an ideal means of transport for busy urban areas. Trolley buses are efficient, quiet, comfortable, exhaust-free and economical to operate. On short routes with many stops, our quiet, smooth-running, low-floor trolleys are equally popular among drivers and passengers alike. HESS trolley technology also handles unusual topographies and climatic conditions with no problems.

Nice and warm on those cold days

During the cold part of the year, our water heating system keeps passengers comfortable inside the bus with uniform heat distribution. It is also worth noting that the heating system doesn’t generate any extra costs since the heat is derived from recovered braking energy.
