Otani Tyres selected as new OE partner for futuristic electric buses by Bogdan Corporation

Bogdan Corporation, a leading Ukrainian auto manufacturer known for its buses, trucks, and speciality vehicles, is partnering with Otani Tyres for its new line of electric buses. The e-buses will come equipped with Otani’s OH 501s, adding Otani to Bogdan’s extensive network of OE suppliers.
While emphasizing on consciousness towards environmental issues and sustainable auto-mobility, Bogdan is presenting its range of future-ready electric buses for the European roads, in a major auto-expo in March 2020. Otani, the Thai tyre giant will be the sole OE supplier to this range of nouvelle buses.
The partnership process was expansive, comprising technical discussions between the various process technologists of the Corporation and iTruck, Otani’s dominant sales partner in Ukraine.
Otani’s OH 501 stood positive over the stringent factors considered by Bogdan, prioritizing comfort for passengers, mileage, braking distance, and noise. The weightage of OH 501’s certifications, test results, and testimonials, along with the efforts of Otani’s prestigious Ukrainian dealer, iTruck, allowed for Bogdan Corporation and Otani to come together.
