Economical and ideal for urban use

Public transport is booming. In metropolitan areas especially, more and more people want a way to travel from point A to point B that is convenient, fast and safe. HESS has developed an elegant alternative that provides greater transport capacity in the form of its lighTram®, a 25-meter-long double-articulated bus. This extremely nimble giant with its first-rate handling performance, quiet engine, zero emissions and energy recovery has become a top seller in only a few years.

Maximum transport capacity

  • 4-axle bus with 2-axle drive
  • Accommodates up to 200 passengers
  • Low noise and emissions (reduced exhaust gas and particulate matter)
  • Energy recovery from 15–35 % (depending on route profile and traffic flow)
  • Nimble thanks to double articulation
  • Stable handling even in snow, ice and rain
