Electric Drive for Fuel Cell & Hybrid Electric Buses: EVermont Station Car/Shared Car Demonstration

The objective of this project is to demonstrate electric vehicle technology under cold weather conditions and to continue demonstrating the station car concept - the cleanest car in Vermont. The effort includes the demonstration of ten to twenty electric vehicles in transit-related applications with qualifying public entities and Vermont citizens. The vehicles will test, demonstrate and advance the cold-weather transit use of light-duty vehicles. This project effort will also assess the utility of testing, demonstrating and advancing the cold-weather use of advanced, multi-port rapid chargers. The vehicles will be used in groups of 3 - 5 per location (also called pods) for shared car and station car applications. A complete maintenance plan will be prepared. Service plans and service personnel and technical training will be negotiated before delivery. Spare part procurement procedures will be carefully reviewed. A plan for towing and use of a replacement car in case of breakdown will be developed.
