The DesignLine EcoSaver IV bus features a proprietary hybrid-propulsion system that can operate in “zero-emission” mode on battery power up to 40 percent of the time; reduce greenhouse gas emissions up to 70 percent; reduce fuel consumption up to 40 percent and contributes to a ride that is at least 35 percent quieter than typical city buses.
