The Nova Bus LFSe features a propulsion system that emits no GHG emissions.

Nova Bus has delivered two fully electric Nova Bus LFSe vehicles to TransLink, South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority, in Vancouver, as part of the Canadian Consortium for Urban Transportation Research and Innovation (CUTRIC) Canada-wide Interchangeability Project.

“We are proud to be working with Nova Bus to introduce the first ever battery-electric buses in Western Canada,” said TransLink CEO Kevin Desmond. “This continued partnership will help lead the charge toward the electrification of transit worldwide.”

“Everyone in the industry is watching Canada now. This launch solidifies Canada’s position as a global leader in the electrification of transportation, with the first ever interoperable charging system. The investments made to see this project come to life are helping Translink and Canada achieve their ambitious goals for greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions through technology innovation,” added Josipa G. Petrunic, Executive Director and CEO of CUTRIC.
