Certification means electric Arrival Bus closer to carrying passengers

Arrival Bus

The Arrival Bus has achieved EU certification and received European Whole Vehicle Type Approval (EUWVTA), the manufacturer announced today.

The milestone is a critical step towards Arrival Buses carrying passengers on public roads in Europe and the UK, it added.

Denis Sverdlov, founder and CEO at Arrival said: “This key milestone for Arrival is a testimony to our innovative technologies and our unique new method of design and production of electric vehicles. The Arrival Bus is different from any that has come before, employing technologies developed in-house to create benefits for operators, passengers, and the planet.

“Now more than ever, governments and cities must reform public transportation to have the radical impact the world needs today.”

As Arrival’s technologies and components are shared across all vehicle types, learnings from certification contribute to all vehicle programs, which is one of the many benefits of Arrival’s unique approach to the design of its electric vehicles, the company said.

The Arrival Bus has been developed to meet the needs of cities across the globe, as they set critical sustainability targets and transition their public transportation infrastructure into an affordable, sustainable and equitable ecosystem.

The Bus features flexible passenger seating capacity across the entire flat floor to improve comfort as well as create more standing space. It also includes wrap-around exterior and interior screens, adaptable lighting, a transparent roof, and a suite of digital features.

The vehicle is complemented by Arrival’s software ecosystem, which enables full connectivity, digital customisation, and deep access to vehicle behaviour and data.
