Replacement of diesel buses with electric buses is one of the major trends being witnessed in the . As the operation, repair, and maintenance costs, as well as the cost of fueling, of diesel buses are high, leading bus manufacturers are looking for alternative options to produce buses with lower TCO. The consumption of non-renewable sources of energy is rapidly increasing, and their supply is drastically falling. Bus manufacturers are shifting from conventional diesel-based buses to buses based on alternative fuels, such as electricity, hydrogen fuel cells, solar, ethanol, ultra-low sulfate, and bio-diesel.

Electric bus market in China: Reducing prices of battery packs

Since e-buses are powered and driven by battery-powered systems, the battery cost is one of the most critical factors contributing to the upfront cost of an e-bus. Several improvements in EV battery technology have made e-buses desirable to consumers. For example, advancement of Li-ion batteries has made them comparatively lightweight with a long lifespan compared to conventional lead-acid and valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries. The cost of batteries is also continuously decreasing owing to the implementation of economies of scale from major battery manufacturers.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on automotive manufacturing, “The shifting of manufacturing bases from Japan to China due to a declining domestic market is another reason for the decline in the cost of Li-ion batteries. This shift encourages Chinese manufacturers to develop Li-ion batteries for EVs at a competitive price.”
