«School bus customers are increasingly looking at alternative-power solutions to the traditional diesel engine that has been the staple product for more than 40 years» comments Phil Horlock. «About 50 percent of Blue Bird’s bus sales today are non-diesel, twice the industry average, as we have led the market in alternative-power solutions over the past ten years, with our best-in-class propane engine paving the way. Now we are seeing an unprecedented interest in our electric-powered buses. We expect to have close to 300 on the road by year-end, since delivering our first zero-emissions bus just two years ago».
