CCW DELIVERS TWO ELECTRIC BUSES WITH WIRELESS CHARGING
US company Complete Coach Works (CCW) has delivered two Zero Emission Propulsion System (ZEPS) buses that include a wireless charging system from Wireless Advanced Vehicle Electrification (WAVE) to the City of McAllen’s Transit Department in McAllen, Texas.
“The fact that it’s a refurbished bus with a chassis we currently operate in our fleet makes it practical in terms of interchangeability of parts; it’s a great benefit to us. The ZEPS bus produces zero emissions; it’s all around better for the environment,” says Mario Delgado, transit director for McAllen.
The rehabbed buses cost a fraction of what a new all-electric bus would cost, helping minimize the budget and environmental impact. The two ZEPS buses are also five feet longer than the current buses in the McAllen fleet, permitting a larger capacity limit.
