Collins Bus, Lightning eMotors expand electric school bus offering

Lightning eMotors and Collins Bus Corporation are expanding their zero-emission Type A school bus offering to include both GM and Ford chassis platforms. 

Both chassis versions of the Type A school bus come with 125 kWh of batteries, approximately 130 miles of range, and both AC level 2 at up to 13.2 kW and DC fast charge at up to 80 kW.

Expansion of the Lightning eMotors-Collins Bus strategic partnership, first announced last year, comes two months after the Biden-Harris Administration, through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), announced $5 billion in guaranteed funding for school districts and eligible school bus operators and contractors to begin replacing the nation’s fleet of school buses with clean, American-made, zero-emission buses.
