Daimler’s all-electric school bus on US road by 2019

Daimler, the parent firm of Mercedes-Benz, is reportedly gearing up to manufacture an all-electric school bus with a range of 160 km for US roads by 2019. “The bus is a ‘Saf-T-Liner’ C2 Electric Bus that will be manufactured by Daimler subsidiary Thomas Built Buses,” The Verge reported.
Also named “Jouley,” the bus will be able to accommodate 81 children and is powered by a 60 kWh battery that will give it a range of up to 160 kms.
Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz has also said it will expand its electric vehicle range over the next few years with the “EQ” line-up of electric cars.
