CCW's ZEPS bus featured on Jay Leno's Garage

Posted on February 5, 2013

Complete Coach Works (CCW) VP, sales and marketing, Macy Neshati recently appeared on Jay Leno’s Garage to discuss the company’s all-electric, zero-emission city bus conversion process.

The ZEPS bus is expected to reach a range of between 120 miles to 150 miles and features a highly integrated design with fewer parts for convenient and fast installation; an integrated controller, with built-in energy management functions; computer-controlled synchronous clutch for long life; and regenerative braking capability all within a compact design, ideal for retrofit purposes.

The remanufactured bus, built to like-new condition, includes numerous updates, including lightweight composite subfloors and brand new flooring; an all-new multiplex system and wiring; completely remanufactured suspension and brake system with all moving and wear items replaced; a differential that is remanufactured to OEM specifications; a like-new interior with new seat upholstery as well as refinished side and ceiling panels; and a redesigned dash featuring a touch screen energy monitoring system.

With the help of a CALSTART grant that was directed to Washington state by Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), Richland, Wash.-based Ben Franklin Transit is working with CCW to put the first ZEPS bus into revenue service later this year.
