$180k on a bus that can only go 100 miles before it needs a recharge.... I like the idea but not sure it would be workable for our needs.... you'd need a massive solar array on the roof to charge the batteries. (And really, only 92 AH?)

No problem send me the account number that 5k is in and your SS # moms maiden name bday and copy of your drivers license. Or send the $5 k over to me and I'll send it on at the same time. Any one else need one of these that has $5k. I'm so happy to help.

After this i think I'll buy a Tesla solar roof.

I often wondered about all electric busses.. I suppose for shorter school routes they would be OK.. but wonder if they can be recharged between routes fast enough..

imagine the power grid connection reqiuired at the bus lot to recharged 100 of these all at the same time..


as for Skoolies.. the idea of entertaining a brande new (regular) bus SPEC'd out the way you want it was always an interesting thought.. ie already painted at the factory, no school lights, the engine and gears you want, some of the manufacturers advertise stripped shells... im sure the cost would be way more than most want to pay here, but always wondered exactly what configurations could be had...

It would work perfectly for my application 'tiny home on wheels'.

The only real downside would be if/ when i move closer to the Caribbean, traveling 2 hours a day would take quite a while to get there but would make for a stressless drive and plenty of time to do things on the way.
