MCI battery bus sets a world distance record in BC

Canadian highway bus darling MCI had a demonstration coach run through the province recently, where it set an electric bus distance record, going from Vancouver to Kelowna on a single charge:

The same bus had actually set the previous record on a prior trip, from Kelowna to Delta, but had so much charge left in reserve, the crew gained confidence that the trip could be done in reverse, climbing up the Coquihalla Highway.

Congratulations to the team behind the vehicle, from engineering, to craftsmen to operators, and thank you for making beautiful British Columbia a part of the record attempt!
