Beta Hybrid Citybus 5.1

A custom configuration for the Wentward DT40L bus that adds a real hybrid-electric drivetrain

    To learn how the mod system works, I created this experimental new configuration for the default Citybus that adds a hybrid drivetrain similar to the hybrid buses found in larger cities like Chicago and NYC. This configuration includes a custom eCVT transmission, which has a built in electric motor for boosted torque and "regenerative braking" which slows down the vehicle using the resistance of the motor (which captures kinetic energy into the battery and, on a real hybrid vehicle, reduces wear-and-tear on the friction brake system). The engine on the bus even shuts off when it's not needed (such as when approaching a bus stop or a traffic signal) to conserve fuel!

    This configuration is especially great on the "West Coast" map, as the increased torque helps when climbing the steep city inclines, and the regenerative braking likewise helps when descending these inclines.

    There is a pre-made "citybus_hybrid" configuration, or you can change an existing configuration to hybrid by changing the transmission selection:

    This is a great mod but I noticed since the most recent update, when you remove the interior passenger signs, the bus stops working.

      Make sure you don't have any mods installed that conflict with it. Try disabling all other mods to see if it will work. It works for me and several other people on 5.0, so it's likely a conflict on your end.

    Mod is great but it is unrealistically fast. (Not necessarily a bad thing!)

    The bus does not move at all since the last update...
    ETK 800 - hybrid still works fine though

    Find this mod awesome, but enabling it instantly breaks all stock wentwards

      Should be fixed in the next game update; it's due to a bug in the BeamNG powertrain system that I reported recently. In the meantime, set your default vehicle to a different type altogether (one without a hybrid version) and then you can switch to one of the stock Wentworths and use it.

    So much fun, having a Ford CMax hybrid myself it's great to see it well implemented in the game, thanks!

      Thanks! I also have a hybrid version of the ETK856 which is a similar body style to the CMax ;)
