14 September 2023

ZF is “gearing” up to present its latest advancements in bus and coach technologies at Busworld 2023 in Brussels, including the world premiere of ZF’s next-generation low-floor electric mobility solution for city buses. ZF’s latest eMobility technologies will be on show, demonstrating how its most recent advancements will help provide emission-free public transportation. Taking center stage at ZF’s booth will be the electric central drive CeTrax 2 dual.

ZF’s next generation fully integrated, modular electric central drive CeTrax 2 dual for buses and coaches offers a continues power of 380 kW, features an integrated three-speed transmission making tackling steeper slopes easier and higher cruising speeds more efficient. Also it has on display the 6-speed automatic transmission system EcoLife CoachLine, suitable for engine torques up to 2,800 Nm. The transmission serves high-powered, demanding coach applications, such as winding, challenging routes as well as

stop-go urban situations. Real-time, AI-based automated decision-making and service optimization is offered by the new SCALAR fleet orchestration solution for Public Transport Operators and applies to on-demand people mobility service management and Bus Connect digital fleet management solution will be presented. ZF Bus Connect is ZF’s digital fleet management solution for city buses and coaches with electric, hybrid or combustion engines.


According to ZF its new “City Bus CMS”, Collision Mitigation System, is the industry’s first OE-independent system that helps mitigate, or even avoid, an impending collision while supporting unsecured bus passengers at the same time. The OnHand Electro-Pneumatic Handbrake improves vehicle safety and driver comfort and serves as building-block technology for autonomous driving. Visit ZF in Hall 5 at Booth 537.
