Electric power train technology has progressed to the level where we can finally have zero emission school buses in areas where we need it most.

In August, funded in part by a grant through the California Energy Commission (CEC) and the South Coast Air Quality Management District, two electric buses were delivered to the Colton Joint Unified School District (CJUSD) in San Bernardino County, California.

These electric buses deliver best-in-class performance in safety, driving experience, and range by using a versatile and modular all-electric powertrain. These zero-emission school buses have flexible seating, support wheelchair access, and can be configured to accommodate up to 8 wheelchairs for routes with special needs children. Built on Ford’s F59 chassis, the buses provide a maximum capacity of 48 passengers and a range of up to 85 miles on a single charge.
