At the ceremony, Gabriel Boric, Chilean President, spoke highly of Zhongtong electric city buses, saying “they drive smoothly and achieve high safety standards”. Among many passenger-friendly features on board are their special facilities for those physically-challenged people. By working in Rancagua, Zhongtong electric city buses will not only provide more convenient and comfortable transportation services for local citizens, but also help the city combat air pollution.

As a part of the city’s drive to upgrade its public transportation network, Zhongtong electric city buses officially usher in a new era of green travel for local residents. According to Zhongtong, all the new arrivals belong to N series city buses with low-floor access. They will soon start service in Rancagua city in O’Higgins Province.
