The companies are working to develop an all-electric bus program thatI emaile integrates the Efficient Drivetrains EDI PowerDrive EV all-electric drivetrain and EDI PowerSuite vehicle control software into a Master Transportation passenger bus utilizing battery packs from local supplier, Yiding, and LFP cells from Shenyang.

The initial bus is expected to be in the fourth quarter of 2017, and is the first of its kind to meet the “made in Taiwan” policy—a government initiative created to establish local supply chain, requiring that at least 70% of the components be from manufacturers in Taiwan. The initial bus will operate in normal passenger transit duty
