All Electric School Bus "Stops" at Georgia State Capital

ATLANTA – 02/16/21

On one of the coldest days of the year, the Daimler - Thomas Built Jouley™ all-electric, Class C school bus will be open for tours, with the heater on (!) and zero emissions, as representatives from Peach State Trucks highlight the safety, cost savings, and environmental benefits of going electric with pupil transportation. 

Why Buy The Thomas Electric Bus?

The Jouley™ offers ultra-safe design, with innovative state-of-the-art safety technologies including on-board telematics and system monitoring, quiet ride and big savings on fuel and maintenance costs over the traditional diesel bus. With 295 peak horsepower, the bus accelerates from 0-60 in 49 seconds giving the driver confidence to merge into traffic.

How Far Can An Electric Bus Go?

The Thomas Built Electric Bus has an operating range of 138 miles.

Are Electric Buses Better Than Diesel?

Electric buses do have lower operating costs. Operating a fully electric school bus costs less than a normal school bus running on diesel, gasoline, propane, or compressed natural gas. The best thing is, as EV innovation progresses, the cost to operate a school bus on electricity will only get better!

The Thomas Electric School Bus Is Equipped With DC Fast Charging

The Thomas Built Jouley electric school bus has a 226 kWh battery capacity and the fastest, most efficient charging with DC fast charging. So, your bus fleet will be ready to go when it’s time for drop off and pick up at schools.
