Karsan to Ship 9 Jest Electrics
to Coimbra, Portugal!


Generating transportation solutions that meet today’s mobility needs in its factory located in Bursa, Karsan maintains its position as a solution partner for many countries around the world with its wide range of innovative products. Karsan has recently won the public transportation tender held for the city of Coimbra in Portugal and is now getting ready to provide nine Jest Electric vehicles for the city to enjoy peaceful and quiet journeys in vehicles that light the way to a better future. The company had already delivered two Jest Electric vehicles to Coimbra in 2019, and now this new tender will increase the total number of Jest Electric vehicles in the city to 11. Karsan plans to deliver the tender vehicles to SMTUC, the public transportation authority, within the last quarter of 2020. With this delivery, Portugal will become Europe’s largest Jest Electric fleet owner with a total of 20 vehicles.    

Offering modern solutions in public transportation systems that can be adapted to any city, Karsan continues to be the choice of European countries with its innovative products. As a successful company manufacturing a broad range of vehicles from fuel-stingy diesel-powered vehicles to state-of-the-art electric vehicles, Karsan has recently added another chapter to its strong history by winning the public transportation tender held for Coimbra, Portugal. The company is now getting ready to enhance the Coimbra roads with its nine Jest Electric vehicles. The total number of Jest Electric vehicles in the city will increase to 11 when these nine vehicles are delivered to SMTUC within the last quarter of 2020. With this delivery, Portugal will become Europe’s largest Jest Electric fleet owner with a total of 20 vehicles.
 

Jest Electric boasts the best electric performance!
 

Standing out with its high maneuverability, large interior space, agility on narrow streets thanks to its compact size, and unparalleled climbing performance, the Jest Electric is a favorite among Coimbra people. It is no surprise though, as this vehicle is also passenger-friendly with its 6 meter low-floor. The Jest Electric is equipped with a BMW electric motor producing 170 HP power and 290 Nm torque with optional 44 or 88 kWh  batteries again made possible by BMW. Offering the best performance in its class with a range of up to 210 km, the Jest Electric also boasts a regenerative braking system which provides energy recovery by enabling the batteries to self-recharge at a rate of 25%.
 

Decorated with a 10.1-inch multimedia touchscreen, fully digital dashboard, keyless go, and USB ports as well as an optional WiFi compatible infrastructure, Karsan’s Jest Electric does not come short in terms of comfort compared to passenger cars thanks to its 4-wheel independent suspension system.
