    Los Angeles Metro orders 100 electric buses.

    Post by papa_umau on Sat 14 Oct 2017, 11:56 am

    As part of its bid to go green, America's second-largest bus system has placed an order for up to 100 New Flyer Xcelsior Charge all-electric buses.

    The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro) has ordered 35 buses and has the option to purchase an additional 65.


    L.A.'s new buses are New Flyer's latest design. They feature up to 600 kilowatt-hours worth of lithium-ion batteries, enough for a 230-mile range, according to New Flyer.

    The 60-foot buses are capable of seating up to 120 passengers, depending on configuration.

    New Flyer offers several variants of the Xcelsior Charge buses in shorter lengths and articulated configurations.

    Isn't that great ?

    I wish that Britain could do something similar for the London and other city areas as the older diesel buses are amongst the dirtiest polluters in our towns and cities.

    Here's a photo of this new electric bus;

    That looks cool.

    What I would like to see now is bus and lorry companies in Britain adopting the same policies.

    The Royal Mail are trialling a few electric delivery trucks.

    Here is what they look like:


    And a company in Banbury are starting to build the first home-built electric trucks..

    Here is what they look like:


    A good start, but a long way to go I think.

    Yeah, you certainly have got the hang of it already.

    Well done Angie.
