In collaboration with its business partners, Nova Bus is testing an LFS HEV hybrid bus with integrated E series propulsion system, which can switch from diesel operation to temporary fully-electric mode. Project’s lead engineer, Benoît St-Cyr, presents the features of the bus in this video.
Quebec city's public transportation system, RTC (or Réseau de Transport de la Capitale), will be testing the E series LFS HEV from mid-January until spring 2015. The tests will enable the participants to document the benefits of this green technology, under the various propulsion modes it offers – diesel, hybrid electric or fully electric.
