Seminar participants were offered
demonstration rides in this
ZEBRA-battery powered school bus.

 

The ZEBRA-battery powered
school bus is appropriately
based in the natural setting
of Napa Valley.

 

The ZEBRA-battery school
bus would also be at home
in the capital city of
Sacramento.

On the left are two of the six ZEBRA
battery packs that power the school bus.
On the right are two of the drive train's
electronics modules.

 

One charging connector
provides all of the bus's
electrical charging needs.

 

One hour of charging brings
the batteries back to
80 percent of their capacity
after the morning run.
