California-based ADOMANI and Quebec-based bus manufacturer Lion Bus have announced a new dealership relationship. ADOMANI will be the exclusive dealer of electric eLion buses in the states of Arizona, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington.
The eLion TM4 electric motor provides equal power to the equivalent legacy diesel, and delivers a range of 50, 75 or 100 miles, depending on the battery configuration. A standard on-board telematics system provides real-time data to end users and Lion’s customer service team.
“School districts across the nation are increasingly looking to replace traditional older diesel-powered school buses with zero-emission vehicles that improve air quality, reduce fuel and service costs, and benefit general community health,” said Jim Reynolds, CEO of ADOMANI. “Having the opportunity to scale quickly and provide for increased demand for electric school buses by providing new, purpose-built vehicles from a premier manufacturer like Lion Bus will allow us to give school district managers the opportunity to immediately begin upgrading their fleets.”
