THE NEW CITYBUS BY TROLIGA BUS FEATURING ALLISON AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION SCORES WITH OPTIMIZED FUEL CONSUMPTION
The new citybus Leonis by TROLIGA BUS is now also available with Allison automatic transmission T280R including Retarder. K & W Drive Systems – a renowned Allison Transmission specialist – provided the transmission.
“The transmission control software “Fuel Sense Max” specifically developed for buses enables optimized fuel consumption. A main factor to save fuel is the function Neutral at Stop, which is a standard feature of the software”, explains Philipp Wallisch, Sales Manager at K & W Drive Systems.
The function Neutral at Stop eliminates the load on the engine while the vehicle is stopped to reduce non-productive fuel consumption. It also locks the output to help prevent vehicle roll-back while in neutral. Especially for vehicles with a high start/stop duty cycle, the Neutral at Stop function provides the necessary technology for improvements in fuel economy.
In addition the transmission includes Prognostics, a diagnostic feature that informs the operator through a display on the shift selector to check Oil Life, Filter Life and Transmission Health.
