Lightning Hybrids to host BusCon Ride Along

Posted on August 21, 2012

Come ride in the world’s most cost-effective shuttle bus at North America's Biggest Bus Show — BusCon 2012 at Chicago's Navy Pier September 11 to 12.

Lightning Hybrids, an innovative manufacturing company based in Loveland, Colo., is hosting the most cutting-edge ride on Navy Pier in their new hydraulic hybrid shuttle bus. The retrofit hydraulic hybrid system delivers up to 40% improvement in fuel economy made possible by regenerating braking energy — and it has more power for acceleration and stopping.  At $19,995 for the hybrid retrofit, it provides a 2- to 3-year payback for stop-and-go drive cycles based on fuel and brake savings.  (Find out what your return on investment would be here.) 

The Lightning Hybrids retrofit hydraulic hybrid demo system for the BusCon Ride Along is applied to a 2012 Ford E-450 from Davey Coach.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to ride the Lightning Hybrids hydraulic bus at BusCon – 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm on Tuesday, Sept. 11 and 11:00 am and 1:00 pm on Wednesday, Sept. 12.
