Jefferson Lines is hosting a demonstration of electric motorcoaches at their Minneapolis facility on Aug. 25, 2022.
“This exciting event is one of the first in the region to showcase various electric vehicles including the luxurious 52-passenger coach by Van Hool,” Jefferson Lines said in a released statement. “The motor coach industry has long been a leader in providing environmentally friendly forms of transportation and this event will highlight its efforts to provide sustainable forms of transportation for passengers.”
This event will be presented by ABC Companies, one of the leading distributors of motorcoaches in the country.
On-site, attendees will be able to tour the “Van Hool TDX25E Double Deck motorcoach” with seating for up to 75 passengers. They can also experience the 52-passenger “Van Hool CX45E coach” utilizing Proterra battery systems and capable of traveling ranges over 250 miles per charge in all climates, altitudes and speeds. In addition, 12-passenger cutaway Ford E450 shuttles will be shown as options for smaller groups.
“Hosting the Zero Emissions Tour is another example of Jefferson’s commitment to the communities we serve,” Jefferson Lines Director of Sales and Charters Kevin Pursey said. “As an industry leader, Jefferson Lines was recognized for its efforts with the 2022 Leadership and Environmental Sustainability Award presented at the American Bus Association annual Marketplace event. This award is presented annually to recognize “motorcoach industry leaders for their investment in environmentally-responsible equipment and the adoption of green business practices.”
