ElDorado National (California) or ENC, a subsidiary of REV Group, Inc., and an industry leader in heavy-duty transit buses and emission-free technology, secured an order for 19 Axess EVO-FC hydrogen fuel cell buses from California public transit provider, Foothill Transit.
Foothill Transit currently operates a fleet of 359 buses, which includes zero-emission models, and serves Southern California’s San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys, including Pasadena and downtown Los Angeles. The new Axess EVO-FC buses will contribute to Foothill’s ongoing commitment to operating a 100% zero-emissions bus fleet.
Powered by the industry’s highest capacity fuel cell and BAE Systems® Gen3 electric propulsion system, the Axess EVO-FC delivers an industry-leading range up to 400 miles, refuels in 12-20 minutes and the only emission is water. As a leader in low or no-emission technology, ENC was the first bus manufacturer to complete the 12-year/500,000 miles FTA Altoona test for a Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric powered bus in 2018.
“The Axess EVO-FC is the perfect addition to Foothill Transit’s zero-emissions fleet,” said Mike Ammann. “ENC continues to lead the industry in next-generation alternative fuel buses that help transit authorities across the country operate in a more sustainable way.”
ENC is currently taking orders for the Axess EVO-FC and its entire line of zero-emissions buses.
