Evergo presents the first electric bus of the Dominican Republic
To commemorate the closing of the Sustainable Mobility Week, INTRANT carried out a test route of the first electric bus in the country operated by Evergo, an InterEnergy Systems’ technology platform.
October 02, 2020.- As part of the actions carried out in the Dominican Republic to promote environmentally friendly transportation modes, and as a sign of willingness to integrate new technologies into public transportation, the company Evergo, operated by InterEnergy Systems, presented the first imported electric bus to be implemented in the Dominican Republic.
During the culmination of the National Sustainable Mobility Week, celebrated between September 21 and 29, a tour route was made from the Colonial Zone to the facilities of the INTRANT by executive and collaborators of InterEnergy System and the General Direction of Traffic Safety and Land Transportation (DIGESETT).
According to Wellington Reyes, InterEnergy Systems Commercial and Innovation Director, the bus has a range of 300 kilometers and seating capacity for 44 passengers. The vehicle’s primary purpose will be to provide transfers between the airport and the hotels located in Bávaro, La Altagracia Province, in the country’s eastern region. This move represents a boost for sustainable tourism in the leisure industry and a milestone for electric mobility in the Dominican Republic.
“InterEnergy Systems is making an incursion with this pioneering vehicle in the country from its effort to promote alternative technologies to public transport,” expressed Wellington Reyes.
To this extent, Evergo was recently certified by the National Institute of Transit and Land Transportation (INTRANT), thanks to its contribution to the environment and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, through the most extensive and sophisticated network of electric charging stations in the nation, with 150 points installed throughout the country.
