Published by National Bus Trader
On November 3, New Flyer’s battery-electric Xcelsior CHARGE NG™ bus visited Guelph, Ontario, Canada, for a zero-emission bus demonstration with t Guelph Transit Commission.
The Guelph Transit Commission team tested the high-performance EV technologies of the Xcelsior CHARGE NG bus with a test drive. During the demo, the team also tested New Flyer’s smart leveling system – SmartRider™ – by using objects of different heights to simulate different curb heights.
The demo results provided that the Xcelsior CHARGE NG has unmatched accessibility, ease of maneuverability, an efficient electric traction drive system and convenient interior design to provide passengers with a quiet, smooth and comfortable ride.
