Nova Bus unveils its first hybrid-electric bus


Nova Bus unveiled its first hybrid-electric vehicle at the Canadian Urban Transit Association Trans-Expo held November 7.

The Nova LFS HEV features a GM Allison Ep40 system, which combines an electric drive and a diesel engine.

“The LFS hybrid electric application shows Nova Bus’ commitment to high quality vehicles and environmental conservation,” says company president and CEO Gilles Dion.

The new hybrid vehicle offers significantly reduced fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

Other advantages are a smoother and quieter ride as well as reducing brake and engine wear.

Standard features include a unique stainless steel structure as well as corrosion-free outside skin panels.
