What happens when you shoot a manhole cover at the battery pack of Thomas Built Buses’ electric school bus? Turns out, not much.
The safety of electric school buses is a top concern for us, as is the safety of all of our school buses. Rest assured that the Thomas Built Buses Saf-T-Liner® C2 Jouley® electric school bus has undergone more safety testing than any other electric school bus in the market, and we continue to monitor the performance of our electric school buses even after the buses have been deployed. Along with Proterra®, we test our electric buses and battery packs to withstand heat, cold, impact, vibration and submersion. And that’s just the beginning.
From individual battery cell testing to maintenance training, safety features and electrical cut-offs, Thomas Built Buses goes the extra mile to ensure a safe, reliable and durable electric school bus for you and your technicians.
