Gillig says its zero-emission battery electric bus, powered by Cummins, is now available.

“This bus is designed on our low floor platform, which offers the most reliable bus while retaining fleet commonality,” said Gillig president and CEO,  Derek Maunus.

“With more than 200 years of combined experience, Gillig and Cummins have a long history of collaborating to adopt new technologies and innovate power solutions for transit applications.”

The zero-emission battery electric bus incorporates Cummins’ electrified powertrain, which features remote diagnostics and over-the-air connectivity.

The bus initially incorporates standard 444 kWh battery capacity (six packs) and supports charging interoperability via industry standards. Variants will include a 35 version and opportunity charging.

“Cummins is proud to bring a fully-electric bus solution to market with Gillig,” said Cummins VP Electrified Power, Julie Furber.

“Our battery electric system is another example of Cummins commitment to quality, dependable products. We are committed to understanding our customers and their needs, providing solutions that enable their success.”
