Karsan Introduces Dobrich, Bulgaria 
the First Electric Transport Minibus!

Bulgaria’s First Electric Bus  
from Karsan! 

Karsan continues to be the environmentally friendly choice of urban transport with its 100% electric product range and is now electrifying its neighboring country Bulgaria following several other European countries. Karsan sold 4 e-JEST buses to the Municipality of Dobrich, the very first electric minibus in Bulgaria. e-JEST, the city's first electric public transport bus, was purchased by the Dobrich Municipality with European funding, and it features unique dimensions in the 6-meter class, high maneuverability and a superior range performance. Karsan's e-JEST export is also the first electric minibus  order in the history of Bulgaria. 

With their eco-profile, comfort, high performance and ideal dimensions, Karsan's electric buses continue to conquer European cities. With the sale of the first electric bus to our neighbor Bulgaria, Karsan continues to be the number one choice for urban transport with its 100% electric product range. With its fleet of more than 100 electric buses, Bulgaria continues to invest in public transport in an environmentally friendly way and has chosen Karsan e-JEST as its first minibus-sized electric vehicle. Karsan delivered 4 e-JEST buses to the municipality of Dobrich. e-JEST is also the first electric public transport bus of the Dobrich municipality and draws attention with its design and performance. With this export to Bulgaria, where Karsan already had a presence with its fleet of diesel and CNG fueled buses, the number of Karsan buses in the country is now almost 50.  

Emission-free travel with a range of up to 210 km

A proven performer which comes with high maneuverability and unmatched passenger comfort, e-JEST is equipped with a BMW electric motor capable of 184 HP power and 290 Nm torque with optional 44 or 88 kWh batteries, also made by BMW. Offering the best performance in the 6-meter bus line with a range up to 210 km, the small city bus e-JEST 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 ignition, and USB ports as well as an optional WiFi compatible infrastructure, e-JEST does not come short in terms of comfort compared to passenger cars thanks to its 4-wheel independent suspension system.
