The GUTSi ZerO is based on a Smith Edison. 40/51 Kwhr lithium battery with fast charging - full recharge in 4 hours. Range 120 miles per day in Central London leaving the depot at 0500 and returning at 0030.
Design brief was to make interior feel like an ‘executive jet’
For simplicity GUTSi commuting is self managed by employees
To encourage commuters to cancel seats during holiday/planned trips we have negotiated ‘as good as cash’ vouchers of a higher value than the net ‘fare’ with high quality retailers local to commuters
Special requirements of employees/companies can easily be incorporated with a simple phone call to our helpful staff
Model the most effective bus route and departure schedule to comprehensively meet the needs of selected staff
Simple online registration allows route analysis to establish passenger densities and decide service frequency for commuters. Site to site shuttle journeys during the day also provide economic and environmental benefits
Route analysis can solve for:
Passenger distance to pick up point
Distance to destination / journey time
Number of stops
Number of buses
Net cost per employee per seat = sub £ 4
Value of taxi = probably over £20
Value of time = probably over £50
Total value = probably over £70
To City institutions these numbers are attractive – probably a good ROI.
The environmental and brand equity benefits come for free!
GUTSi no risk, nothing to lose & everything to gainmaths
Real, accessible & quantifiable economic benefits which come simply...
by offering a most valued perk that you don’t even have to pay for while...
achieving real carbon dioxide and toxic emission reductions.
For companies there is no risk, nothing to lose & everything to gainkeeping it simple
GUTSi uses just 5% of the energy of a sole occupancy taxi and less than any other mechanised transport mode including the tube.
Zero Carbon dioxide GUTSi produces no CO2 at all. We power the vehicles sustainably making a real contribution to reducing greenhouse gasses.
Zero Toxic emissions
GUTSi produces Zero toxic emissions tackling the critical air quality issue in London which has a high economic and human cost to the capital.
Silent running GUTSi is very quiet, leading to a more peaceful city centre . Quieter roads encourage walking and cycling
Congestion Direct flexible express routes = minimal time on the road . No-stop services = free flow of traffic. Modal shift from cars = less vehicleshas unbeatable environmental credentials
Note: Based on a 7 mile journey from Fulham to EC3 paid for 100% by the employeein the 50% tax bracket. Bus waiting time based on 08/09 data. Green cells in the body of the table are the best in each section.
