Ebus hybrid-electric buses are designed to seat 22 passengers, plus standees, and are fully ADA compliant, making them ideal for a variety of applications and routes including: circulator, shuttle, campus and neighborhood service.
For those transit applications requiring greater range than battery-electric propulsion can provide, or where it is not feasible to provide fast-charging on the route, Ebus offers a proven, ultra-low emission micro-turbine as an onboard hybrid generator. When so equipped, the range is limited only by the amount of fuel in the tank. There are two versions of the micro-turbine: one operating on HD-5 propane and the other on low sulfur diesel fuel. The micro-turbine is supplied by Capstone Turbine Corporation and has been certified by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for transit applications. The micro-turbine is clearly the most cost-effective solution to extending range, while maintaining clean and quiet operation.
The hybrid-electric bus starts at $325,000.
