Thomas Built Buses delivers its 1,000th electric school bus

US school bus manufacturer Thomas Built Buses, a brand of the Daimler Group, has delivered its 1,000th Saf-T-Liner C2 Jouley battery-electric school bus as part of an order for eight of the buses placed by Meriwether County School System (MCSS) in Georgia.

The new buses are fully funded through the EPA’s Clean School Bus grant program. They are MCSS’s first electric models and will replace some of its current diesel fleet of 46 buses.

The Saf-T-Liner C2 Jouley has a maximum passenger capacity of 81. It delivers 295 peak horsepower, has a standard battery capacity of 244 kWh, and has a range of up to 150 miles.

“Jouley was a natural choice because of the available long-term battery energy, access to fast DC charging and safety-first construction,” said Robert Griffin, MCSS superintendent.
