Pneumatics has a rich history that dates back many years and at present shows no sign of slowing down, with innovative pneumatic solutions being developed and released on a regular basis. Air Lab’s engineers are migrating this proven technology to mobility applications. In a CNG hybrid pneumatic configuration, our proprietary powertrain delivers performance and reliability, all without the need for a charging infrastructure. But best of all – it delivers the lowest CO2 emission metrics according to independently generated Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) protocols.
A pneumatic motor’s power-to-weight ratio is five to six times higher than an electric motor. In addition, its torque curve is exceptionally well suited for moving a full bus up an incline without hesitation under any weather and temperature conditions. One of many critical evaluation points to be considered on your procurement team’s checklist.
