Lightning eMotors electrifies gas, diesel vehicles in Bay Area

Lightning eMotors says it is giving gasoline and diesel vehicles a second, zero-emissions life by repowering a variety of passenger transit vehicles for shuttle service providers for tech companies located throughout Silicon Valley. The all-electric vehicles include Class 3 passenger vans and Class 7 motorcoaches, all of which are either in service already or soon to be in service to provide zero-emission intra-campus and Park and Ride transportation for thousands of employees in the Bay Area region, the company says.

The vehicles are also equipped with Lightning eMotors’s integrated telematics system, which the company says allows up to 100 parameters of vehicle performance to be tracked in near-real-time to optimize route planning, increase cost savings and assist with day-to-day operations.
