News and articles on electric, hybrid and low carbon emission buses (LCEB).
The definition for low carbon emission bus is based on a methodology developed by theLowCVP:
"A Low Carbon Bus produces at least 30% fewer Greenhouse Gas Emissions than the average Euro 3 equivalent diesel bus of the same total passenger capacity. The Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions will be expressed in grams of carbon dioxide equivalent measured over a standard test, and will cover "Well-to-Wheel" (WTW) performance, thereby taking into account both the production of the fuel and its consumption on board".
