Cleaner power with better benefits
Less parts, lower costs
Our battery and fuel cell technology have simplified architecture to reduce the number of moving parts and lower the cost of maintenance.
Breathe in cleaner air
Battery and hydrogen-powered buses emit zero carbon emissions when running, allowing passengers and communities to breathe easier.
Revel in the silence
Whisper quiet operations reduce driver fatigue and decrease ambient noise when driving through neighborhoods, school zone and busy streets.
Same but different
Drivers who know how to drive a diesel bus know how to drive an Accelera-powered bus. Minimal retraining is needed as clean energy buses operate similar to internal combustion engines – with an acceleration and braking pedal, minus the harmful emissions and noise pollution.
Customized for you
Accelera is ready to partner with you to find a zero-emissions solution that best meets the needs of your fleet. With industry-standard charging interoperability and parts and training commonality, our technologies provide unmatched flexibility and scalability.
“As an operator, I also feel very safe driving a vehicle [equipped with an Accelera electric powertrain] that "doesn't pollute" and handles adverse weather with ice and snow packed roads so securely.”
