Fifth step involves technology that will be able to manage it independently in all situations – such as muddy trails and poor weather conditions.
APOLONG buses are smaller than the classic, they do not have a seat for the driver, no steering wheel, no pedal for the gas and brakes, but driving exclusively for the computer.
The APOLONG buses run an electric motor, and with a battery charge of two hours can exceed one hundred KM, with a maximum speed of up to 70 KM/H per hour.
