Innovation

Known for breaking new ground with the first low-floor bus, the first diesel-electric bus, the world's first zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell fleet and most recently, the MiDi®, North America's first mid-sized transit bus, and an all-electric bus prototype, we remain dedicated to innovation and excellence as we provide customers with a wide range of products.

From clean-running, fuel-efficient hybrid buses; zero-emission electric trolleys; all-electric buses, buses with alternative fuels, like hydrogen, CNG and clean diesel buses - our products put us on the map.

Quality and innovation keep us ahead.
