The Electric Bus uses lithium ion rechargeable batteries that can store 200 KWh of electricity. The Siemens Electric Drive System converts three-phase AC power to drive the traction motor via DC power from batteries. When braking, the motor acts as a generator to recover energy. The air compressor and air conditioning compressors are using DC power converted to AC. Another converter is used to supply 24-volt DC power to steering, interior fans, lights, and accessories.
