Israel First Electric Bus Debuts in Tel Aviv

JewishPress Logo

Tel Aviv residents began riding on Israel’s first electric bus Tuesday, several weeks after the Better Place electric car venture filed for bankruptcy,

The Dan Bus Company invested $112 million for the orange-colored pollution-free bus, whose route takes it from the city’s central bus station to the Arlozorov train station. It can run approximately four hours before needing a six-our charge, and if it pays off, the bus company envisions buying another 250 electric vehicles.

As for the private electric business, there still is a chance it will make a comeback. Investors paid only $5.5 to pick up the pieces of Better Place and try to recharge the idea of Israeli motorists driving gas-free cars.

    Electric buses are not clean if you look at the whole "well to wheel" the answer is Natural Gas as a road fuel and then you can get rid of all the diesel buses.
