Thermal management specialist Eberspaecher Climate Control Systems Bus & Coach has equipped more than 40 electric buses from Build Your Dreams (BYD) and Golden Dragon with its electric roof-mounted air-conditioning system AC 136 AE HP. The zero-emission vehicles will be used by Israeli transport companies in Tel Aviv, Haifa and, for the first time, in Jerusalem.
The electrically driven air-conditioning solution has been specially tailored to the requirements of hybrid and electric buses. Thanks to its reversible refrigerant circuit, it combines cooling and heating functions in a single device – thus ensuring passengers enjoy the ideal temperature all year round. In addition, the system scores with one hundred percent fresh air supply.

“Our high-performance electric air-conditioning systems contribute to a high level of passenger comfort and clean mobility in the public transport system,” said Oliver Wels, General Manager Eberspaecher Climate Control Systems Bus & Coach. Bus manufacturers additionally benefit from diagnostics-capable components, a brushless fan and the system’s modular design, which enables quick and easy installation.
“Chinese manufacturers have an enormous share in the global electric bus market,” said Wels when explaining the importance of the orders for Eberspaecher. “Therefore, cooperation with BYD and Golden Dragon is a key step for us in further expanding our global presence in this market.”
The majority of the more than 40 electric buses are operated by public transport companies in Israel’s major cities of Tel Aviv and Haifa. In future, seven BYD vehicles will also be the first all-electric buses to be used in Jerusalem’s public transport system.
