Lightning eMotors Inc. and Collins Bus Corp., a subsidiary of REV Group Inc., are working together to expand their zero-emission Type A school bus offering to include both General Motors Co. and Ford Co. chassis platforms.

Both chassis versions of the type A school bus come with 125 kWh of batteries, about 130 miles of range, and both AC level 2 at up to 13.2 kW and DC fast charge at up to 80 kW, the companies said Tuesday.

Lightning eMotors and Collins Bus said the expansion of the partnership, first announced last year, comes just two months after the US, through the US Environmental Protection Agency, announced $5 billion in guaranteed funding for school districts and eligible school bus operators and contractors to begin replacing the nation’s fleet of school buses with clean, American-made, zero-emission buses. The funding is expected to play a critical role in accelerating the adoption of all-electric school buses across the country.
