Morocco launches first fleet of electrical buses

Chinese-built electric buses have hit the streets of Marrakesh, Morocco in the country’s effort to reduce its carbon emissions.

The first group of 15 buses were officially launched into operation in a ceremony attended by various delegates, including the deputy mayor, Chinese ambassador Li Li and engineers from Yangtze company where the buses were built.

The fleet of buses are powered solely by electricity. They have batteries that can be charged through antennas as they take passengers around the city.

Morocco has stepped up its effort in developing green energy and technology.

Last year during the COP-22 climate conference in Marrakech, Yangtze’s buses were already doing test runs for the participants.
