Better than diesel buses! Diesel engines do not like the cold, they are hard to start and OC Transpo sometimes has to idle many buses overnight to make sure they will start in the morning. e-Buses will start and work well in the cold. Range can be reduced by the cold but that is mainly due to heating the cabin. e-Buses can be fitted with diesel heaters if the battery capacity is needed for range.
60ft articulated e-Buses have motors on 2 axles which will mean an end to pushing the bus on snowy days.
