ElDorado National (California) Inc., or ENC, announced Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) has ordered 22 of its 40-foot Axess CNG-powered buses and four of its new 40-foot Axess EVO-BE™ Battery Electric buses.
DFW, one of the largest airports in the world, is the first carbon neutral airport in North America. The new fleet of ENC buses is part of the airport’s ongoing efforts to maintain this status. This fleet of Axess buses, ordered through Creative Bus Sales, is expected to be delivered to DFW in Summer 2023.
ENC’s Axess platform delivers industry-leading performance and safety and features a low floor, making it an ideal choice for airports. Axess buses are in operation at 33 airports around the country. The new Axess EVO-BE™ is the next generation in ENC’s line of zero emission battery-electric buses, which is purpose built for every transit and shuttle application, and available with an industry-leading 738 kWh of battery energy storage.
“For over 40 years, ENC has been a leader in low-emission and alternative energy buses,” said Jason Moore, VP/GM of ENC. “We are excited to introduce our next-generation Axess EVO-BE bus and supply one of the largest, most advanced airports in the world with this zero-emission technology.”
ENC recently announced its next generation of Battery Electric and Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric buses, which utilize a common structural platform, propulsion system, and technologies, with over 90% commonality.
