North American bus manufacturer Nova Bus, a member of the Volvo Group, is launching a new 100 per cent electric, long-range dual charging bus, the LFSe+ at the New York Public Transit Association conference in Albany, New York.
“We are very excited to physically unveil our LFSe+ in our home state of New York and mark an important moment in the history of Nova Bus,” says Martin Larose, president of Nova Bus. “We are taking another big step in the evolution of zero emission transportation, and I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of it. All of our buses use the LFS platform and are built with the finest expertise and workmanship of our colleagues based in Plattsburgh.”
Powered with up to 564kWh, the LFSe+ will soon be operating in several cities, including Broome County in New York state.
The new LFSe+ integrates the proven electric drive motor and power electronics from BAE Systems, which offers lower weight and increased power density to contribute to performance and durability.
