Karsan has entered the North American market with an e-JEST electric minibus delivered to the Canadian city of Saint John in cooperation with Karsan’s distributor Damera.
Okan Baş, Karsan CEO, says: “We continue our global collaborations with Canada in North America in accordance with our strategy. Karsan e-JEST has become Canada’s first low entrance, 20-foot electric minibus offering a public transportation service.”
The city of Saint John has made a commitment to transformation by taking significant steps towards replacing vehicles in the fleet with battery-electric or hydrogen fuel cell vehicles by 2040.
The e-JEST offers a range of up to 210 km and has a BMW electric motor producing 170hp power and 290Nm torque plus BMW 44 or 88kWh batteries.
