Finland is a well-known cleantech country. We are born to respect clean nature, pollution free environment and scarce resources. Our interest in hightech solutions together with nature-loving way of living have set the starting point for the Linkker electric-bus concept.
Linkker’s story began over 10 years ago. Technical know-how, hard work and furious passion to innovate electric buses that provide leading operational performance, have been the goal right from the beginning. The group of innovative designers wanted to create a sustainable transportation solution that would serve the public transportation needs for the decades ahead. Today we can proudly say that we have come to the point in which cities all over the world are able to select pollution-free and easily operated Linkker electric buses.
Linkker core technologies are light weight chassis and body constructions and energy efficient drive lines. These have been developed in several steps. Light weight construction was first used in a diesel bus launched back in 2005. The road and climate conditions in Finland are very demanding and therefore only well proven technologies are approved by Linkker.
Drive line development started in 2007 and was completed in several projects. One very important project was the Electric Race About project in which worlds fastest registered electric sports car around Nurburgring Nordschleife was developed.
The first Linkker bus was developed 2011 in a VTT state research center coordinated eBUS project using light weight constructions from the diesel bus and drive line developed by Linkker team. This demonstrator was benchmarked against commercial eBuses. Main test objectives was operational capabilities of the buses in terms of energy consumption, re-charging, daily mileage, passenger capacity and driving. The test results were very promising and thus the decision to bring this product on the market was done!
We at Linkker want to offer a pollution-free public transportation solution as well as a sustainable investment. We have grasped the trends of tomorrow’s public transportation. With us, you will turn public transportation into your city’s asset.
Do not compromise quality of life in cities. Take the first step in investing in your city’s future today
