Foothill Transit Orders 19 ENC Zero-Emission Axess® EVO-FC™ Hydrogen Fuel Cell Buses
El Dorado National (California) or ENC, a subsidiary of REV Group, Inc., and a manufacturer of heavy-duty transit buses and emission-free technology, secured an order for 19 Axess EVO-FC hydrogen fuel cell buses from California public transit provider, Foothill Transit.
Foothill Transit currently operates a fleet of 359 buses, which includes zero-emission models, and serves Southern California’s San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys, including Pasadena and downtown Los Angeles. The new Axess EVO-FC buses will contribute to Foothill’s ongoing commitment to operating a 100% zero-emissions bus fleet.
“Powered by the industry’s highest capacity fuel cell and BAE Systems® Gen3 electric propulsion system, the Axess EVO-FC delivers an industry-leading range up to 400 miles, refuels in 12-20 minutes and the only emission is water. As a leader in low or no emission technology, ENC was the first bus manufacturer to complete the 12-year/500,000 miles FTA Altoona test for a Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric powered bus in 2018,” according to a press release.
