The Waseda Advanced Electric Micro Bus (WEB) has been developed and tested for convenient regional public transportation. By adopting an advanced hybrid electric power supply system (Nickel Sodium Chloride Battery & Super capacitor for WEB-1, Nickel Sodium Chloride Battery & Li-ion Battery for WEB-2) and related key components, significant improvements in energy consumption and CO2 emissions have been achieved, compared to that of an equivalent diesel micro bus.
