DATTCO, Inc. Acquires First Electric School Bus in Connecticut

DATTCO, Inc., New England’s premier bus dealership, has added the Collins Type A All-Electric School Bus to its inventory. Collins’ all-electric buses are environmentally friendly and offer up to 85% in operating and maintenance savings as well as an innovative structural design ensuring additional safety.

The Collins electric school bus utilizes Motiv Power Systems Electric Powered Intelligent Chassis (EPIC), based on the Ford E-450 platform. The system’s commercially proven battery packs are validated by millions of real-world miles. Sodium Nickel batteries work in a series, which means if one runs out of power, another will take over.
