The base HVIP voucher amount is $95,000 per bus, New Flyer says, with additional available rebate incentives of $15,000 for bus fleets operating in disadvantaged communities, $20,000 for the purchase of rapid chargers, $2,000 for extended warranties, “and an additional $10,000 per bus applied to the first three purchases of electric buses.”

The all-battery Xcelsior was introduced at this past autumn’s APTA show in Houston (F&F, October 14). Features include

  • an integrated energy storage system ranging from an approximate 100 to 300 kilowatt-hours of on-board power;
  • Siemens electric drive system;
  • the ability to receive a partial recharge using a regenerative braking system, “which is 
ideally suited for the typical start-and-stop duty cycle of a transit bus;”
  • proven electric subsystems and accessories currently available on the Xcelsior hybrids;
  • both depot charging and en-route rapid charging capability;
  • a significantly quieter ride; and
  • zero emissions. (emphasis added)

New Flyer operates an aftermarket parts facility in Fresno, Calif. and a completion and service facility in Ontario, Calif.

HVIP is funded by the California Air Resources Board and administered by Calstart.
