Blue Bird recently unveiled their all new Vision Electric Bus. This vehicle offers the same proven and reliable drivetrain power as the traditional Vision buses, but with zero emissions it leaves a cleaner footprint. One charge can last up to 120 miles, and recharge time is normally less than 8 hours. With no need for oil changes or engine maintenance, the Blue Bird electric bus has lower maintenance costs than a traditional bus.
There are hundreds of thousands in grant incentives for Electric school buses, which could help to make purchase acquisition more affordable.
