The first LionD electric school buses are being delivered to Lion Electric customers in California. The configuration sold in the United States provides seating capacity for as many as 83 children and can travel 155 miles on a single charge.

"We're excited for customers to deploy their LionDs and experience all that they have to offer," said Nicolas Brunet, Lion's president. The buses were built at the company's manufacturing facility in Joliet, Ill. "The zero-emission LionD will improve the well-being of our customers and society for years to come and I couldn't be prouder of our entire team for working resiliently to bring this new platform to life."

The LionD features:

  • An extra-wide center aisle for efficient entry/exiting and rearward driver visibility.
  • Programmable low-speed sound generator.
  • Optimized front windshield for improved sight of cross traffic and student safety in front of the bus.
  • Ergonomically designed driver cockpit.

The LionD is designed on the foundation of the LionC Type C bus, which has been transportating students across North America for more than eight years. It includes rust-free composite body panels, staircase, and low-voltage battery compartment, as well as a modular lower skirt and one-piece seamless fiberglass roof that eliminates thousands of rivets and potential leak points.
