Daimler delivers Orions to OC Transpo

Posted on November 18, 2008

[IMAGE]Orion-VII-Ottawa-1Full.jpg[/IMAGE] OC Transpo, the urban transit service for the City of Ottawa, took delivery of two Orion VII diesel-electric hybrids with new lithium-ion energy storage systems from Daimler Buses North America.

The two are the first of an order of 202 that will be delivered over the course of the next two years.

The first two Orion VII hybrids delivered will be running in Ottawa on a pilot basis.

The Orion VII hybrids use up to 35 percent less fuel, and the entire fleet is expected to reduce carbon emissions by over 5,000 tons annually, depending on the duty cycle in which the buses operate.
