Micro Bird Electric DRW

Type-A - School Bus

The Micro Bird G5 Electric offers the cleanest powertrain on the market. Thanks to a two-speed transmission (exclusive to Micro Bird), the torque is maximized at a low speed and promotes a better battery autonomy. 

In total, four driving modes are available to optimize the autonomy of the vehicle and passenger comfort. The regenerative break feature will optimize battery performance, especially on urban routes.

You will find a 7 inch LCD touch screen integrated with all Micro Bird G5 Electric. The remaining autonomy, the battery charge and diagnostic alerts will clearly be identified on the screen, providing accurate driving information.

The Micro Bird G5 Electric requires significantly lower maintenance than gasoline models: put an end to oil changes and engine maintenance.
