“Scott Shepard, senior research analyst for Navigant Research, tells Trucks.com that the adoption of electric buses is gaining speed but the transition to zero emissions by public transportation agencies is not moving as fast as some might hope for. Worldwide, about 100,000 electric buses are sold annually, 95% of them in China. In the US, Navigant predicts electric buses will account for only 15% of the market by 2025. Even in China, where national policies strongly favor electric transportation, battery operated buses account for only 70% of the total bus market.”
CleanTechnica describes how the electric bus trend will continue to move up.
