CHAMBER WELCOMES LAUNCH OF NEW ALL ELECTRIC BUS BY NOVA BUS
The North Country Chamber of Commerce is welcoming the official announcement today by Nova Bus and its partners, BAE, of a groundbreaking new all-electric bus for the North American market.
"Nova Bus and BAE have been working for several years toward the development of a new 100% electric, long range, dual charging bus," states Garry Douglas, Chamber President, "and today that new bus is a reality in the form of the LFSe+. This groundbreaking vehicle with its technology advances places Nova Bus in the right place at the right time as North America begins the move toward electrification of buses and transportation. And thanks to Nova Bus and BAE, Plattsburgh will be at the heart of this historic shift, ready to build the LFSe+ as the market sees what it offers and begins to place orders."
The Chamber notes that Nova Bus is one of the centerpieces of a 54 company cluster of transportation equipment and aerospace manufacturers now located in the North Country.
"Regions across the country are looking at how to be part of green technology, while we are strongly positioned as an important new hub for transit technology in buses, rail and aerospace." notes Douglas. "We congratulate Nova Bus and BAE on this major new advance, and we thank them once again for their continued investment and commitment to the North Country. And we will be continuing to organize visits and meetings with key state and federal officials to build awareness and market support. Onward and upward!" See a video of the announcement HERE.
