Nova Bus LFSe+ Electric Bus Completes FTA Testing

Nova Bus has announced that its long-range battery-electric bus, the LFSe+, has successfully completed the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Bus Testing Program.

This evaluation is conducted by the Altoona Bus Testing Center in Pennsylvania. The process aims to certify the safety and efficiency of buses through a series of tests and objective analyses.

The LFSe+ is a long-range 100% electric transit bus designed for the North American market

In addition to confirming the reliability of the LFSe+, the FTA certification allows future transit agencies to access various federal subsidy programmes to purchase the LFSe+ model.

The successful completion of these tests therefore strengthens Nova Bus’s position in the US market.

Martin Larose, President of Nova Bus said:

“Achieving Altoona certification for our LFSe+ fills us with pride: it is one of the highest marks of recognition of quality and durability that our vehicles can receive.”

Nova Bus assembles LFSe+ buses for the Canadian market at the Saint-Eustache plant in Quebec and those for the American market at the Plattsburgh plant in New York State.

The LFSe+ will provide zero-emission-at-the-tailpipe transportation in several Canadian cities, including Vancouver, Waterloo and Halifax. In addition, Nova Bus received its first US order from Milwaukee in May 2018 and its largest order to date from Houston METRO in February 2022.
