AT LAST...A PRACTICAL BATTERY OPERATED BUS

A recently-introduced electric powered bus offers an operating range of 50 miles (70 miles at low speeds), freedom from emissions, competitive operating costs with charging costs of two to three cents a mile and is priced at about $32,000 including battery. The pilot unit has logged over 45,000 miles and orders for up to 200 buses are expected by the end of 1973.
