Plug-in Hybrid

Plug-in hybrids are similar to a traditional hybrid bus, but are equipped with a larger battery which can solely power the bus for a certain distance, giving a ‘zero emission capability’. The battery can be ‘plugged-in’ and recharged using mains electricity.

GHG emissions associated with electricity production need to be taken into consideration when calculating WTW GHG emissions of electric buses.

Manufacturers offering plug-in hybrids:
