1. How you make the frame-chassis and frame-hull of electric bus?

2. How you assemble electric bus (install e-motor, battery,…)?

3. How you realized rear suspension with e-motor + invertor?”

1. The Arrival Bus chassis has a truly “flat-floor” skateboard design. Our core materials include aluminium and composites. We have a number of manufacturing techniques in which these materials are utilised. We use both bonding and bolting techniques.

2. Arrival’s battery modules are encased in packs and then inserted into the Arrival Bus chassis skateboard. The drivetrain typically nests in the rear wheel arch assembly.

3. The Arrival Bus has independent suspension all around the vehicle, and although the drivetrain is mounted outboard, it is not directly to the hub. This combination provides the best ride and handling and complements the fully flat-floor approach.
