The pilot, operated in conjunction with the state of West Virginia, is the first real-world testing of today’s purpose-built, all-electric school bus technology. “The BEAST school buses performed in the pilots just as we would have expected them to,” Atkinson continued. “School districts saw between 110 and 150 miles per full charge, depending on conditions and operator tendencies, allowing them in some cases to only charge the bus overnight.”Round 2 of the pilot project is currently underway with a BEAST school bus operating in each of Grant, Monongalia and Ohio counties. The GreenPower all-electric, zero-emissions Type A school bus was added to the project at the beginning of round 2 with an ADA Nano BEAST operating in Clay County. In addition, these forward-looking statements relate to the date on which they are made.
