Next year California's Kings Canyon Unified School District (USA) will reportedly receive the first of the new SST-e all-electric school bus from Trans Tech Bus and partner Motiv Power Systems.

“SSTe” will be the first Type A school bus in full electric powered by FIAMM SoNick batteries.

Passenger capacity for the Trans Tech/Motiv SST-e all-electric school buses is 30 students, or 24 students and one wheelchair.

“An electric bus can save a school district about 16 gallons of fuel a day, or around $11,000 in fuel savings over a year, not to mention maintenance savings,” said John Phraner, president of TransTech.
