NEW FLYER INVESTS $25 MILLION IN ZEV INNOVATION CENTER
North American bus and coach manufacturer New Flyer plans to invest $25 million in building renovations and expansions at its Anniston, Alabama production campus. Part of the investment will go towards an innovation center for zero-emission bus production.
The company’s Xcelsior buses are offered with a range of drive systems, including diesel, natural gas, diesel-electric hybrid, trolley-electric, and battery-electric. Of the 44,000 New Flyer transit buses currently in service, 6,400 are powered by electric and/or battery propulsion.
This investment not only enhances the technical capabilities, but also provides advanced air quality measures to provide the safest possible work environment.
