The GX 337 ELEC is equipped with an electric motor and with Lithium-ion NMC batteries divided into 8 packs, 6 settled on the roof and the 2 in the tailgate. This model is designed for all-day-use, with night time recharging at the depot in a few hours. These energy storage systems with an exclusive design deliver one of the best densities in the market, at the same time as the best balance between range and GX ELEC passenger capacity. The batteries comply with the R100-2 European standard (vibrations, shocks, fire resistance…).
 
The GX 337 ELEC is a full electric bus which presents main advantages of reliability and performances. Its structure is in stainless steel and its body in composite materials. The chassis and the floor receive a strengthened protection.
 
This new order comes to crown years of leadership, research and development in the electrification of buses. More than 100 units of the Heuliez Bus GX ELEC range have been already sold.
