Half public buses will be electric by 2025

According to a recent report, roughly half public buses will be electric within 7 years, tripling the number on the road, letting urban residents breath a lot easier. The first cost for an electric bus is more but it saves more than that in its lifetime.

However, the 2016 Columbia University report stated that, while electric buses typical cost $300,000 more than diesel buses, that cost is made-up over the electric buses’ lifetimes. Aber estimated that annual savings for an electric bus — thanks to reduced fuel costs — is $39,000, which would compound over the bus’ 12-year lifetime.
