Builder: Trans Tech Bus

Trans Tech Bus leads the nation as the first electric truck manufacturer to provide new, all-electric school buses. Called the SSTe, it is the electric version of their SST model.  Trans Tech uses the Motiv ePCS installed on a Ford E450 chassis to power their electric school bus.

The SSTe school bus is available with 80 or 100 miles of range. Passenger options include 25 students, or 18 students with a wheelchair lift and configurable track seating for up to 3 wheelchairs.

The first buses have gone to Kings Canyon Unified School District in the San Joaquin Valley, California. They are expected to save KCUSD over $10,000 a year in fuel and maintenance costs.
