Complete Coach Works (CCW) has delivered the last of 21 fully electric buses to Indianapolis Public Transportation Corp. (IndyGo) that CCW converted using its Zero Emission Propulsion System (ZEPS), an all-electric battery-powered engine.
According to CCW, the remanufactured ZEPS bus is rebuilt with lightweight flooring, low-resistance tires and energy-efficient heating and cooling, while ensuring a reach of a 130-mile range on a single battery charge. Each of IndyGo’s 40-foot electric buses carries 36 seated passengers plus standees.
“IndyGo is proud to be a transit leader in alternative energy. We feel it’s important to push the envelope and utilize newer technologies to make our operation as efficient as possible,” says IndyGo President and CEO Mike Terry.
Jay Raber, regional sales manager for CCW, adds, “We at CCW are excited and honored to have been selected through a competitive bidding process for the IndyGo project. We value their business and relationship and look forward to the opportunity of working together again in the future.”
