Zinc-Air Bus to be Presented at Public Transportation Expo

Electric Fuel Corporation, a zinc-air fuel cell company, will present its Zinc Air Fuel Cell Bus to transit operators at the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) Expo 2002 in Las Vegas September 23-25, 2002.

New York, New York – September 19, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] Every three years, the transportation industry convenes at APTA’s International Public Transportation Expo. More than 15,000 industry leaders from around the globe are expected to attend and meet suppliers of the latest public transportation products, services and technologies. Electric Fuel will use this occasion to present its zero emission full size transit bus to American transit operators, especially ones operating a large number of buses in areas with air quality issues. The Electric Fuel All Electric Transit Bus is designed to operate as a full-size, zero emission 40-foot bus having a 20-ton gross vehicle weight (including passengers) and operating all standard bus features, including air conditioning. The Electric Fuel zero-emissions electric bus recently demonstrated a record 127-mile range under rigorous urban conditions. In a test drive, the bus traveled under typical city bus driving conditions including stop and go, acceleration and constant speed. The company believes that these test results clearly indicate that all-electric buses utilizing Electric Fuel’s Zinc-Air technology have sufficient range to offer a practical solution for helping to eliminate bus pollution in central cities.
