@LightningeMtrs #sustainability #zeroemissions

Great quote from a story today by William Boston about the recent VW EV failures: “What they didn’t consider: Electric vehicles are more about software than hardware. And producing exquisitely engineered gas-powered cars doesn’t translate into coding savvy.”

Powerful.

At 3,445 Newton-meters of torque (2,540 ft-lbs), the electric motorcoaches are our most powerful and advanced powertrain to date. They have an 800-volt modular, liquid-cooled battery system with up to 640 kilowatt-hours of energy ⚡️
