Full Description of bus

The cleverly designed interior of Xcelsior CHARGE™ allows efficient use of electricity generated from the bus's rechargeable batteries, as all on-board sub-systems and accessories can be electrically driven, from air-conditioning to steering. Xcelsior CHARGE has a range of up to 225 miles (360 km) on a single charge, if combined with rapid charging along the bus routes, Xcelsior CHARGE can stay in service 24 hours a day, greatly reducing operation cost. With the absence of a traditional internal combustion engine, the nearly silent electric traction motor can also provide a quiet and comfortable ride to passengers.
