Battery-electric Xcelsior bus

New Flyer | Posted on January 9, 2015

New Flyer launched its new battery-electric Xcelsior bus, which is also available with clean diesel, CNG, hybrid and trolley propulsion systems. The battery-electric bus is equipped with a Siemens propulsion system and an Eaton charging system. The lithium-ion battery packs of the new vehicle have the ability to receive a partial recharge using a regenerative braking system, which is ideally suited for the typical start-and-stop duty cycle of a transit bus. Range is dependent on the unique operations and route structure of each customer with the capability of scalable battery capacities between 100 and 300 kWh. New Flyer is also developing the first-ever North American designed and built zero-emission, 60-foot battery-electric/ fuel-cell bus.
