Hi everyone,

We thought you might be interested to read this news story about manufacturer Lion Bus' plans to develop an all-electric school bus.

Rich, sorry to put you on the spot, but I'm interested in your stance on this, since you're a Lion sales rep and have previously spoken against hybrid buses.... Will Lion's approach to an electric bus be any different, or is it too early to tell?

I remain consistent promoting diesel power as the most economical and efficient form of school bus power at this point.

Can electric be an option in the future? Absolutely. The questions of battery longevity, trip range, recharge time, and heating/AC still apply.
