BEAST (BATTERY ELECTRIC AUTOMOTIVE SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION)

Beast bus by Greenpower

GreenPower’s Battery Electric Automotive School Transportation, better known throughout the industry as the BEAST, is the school bus market’s first purpose-built Type D zero-emissions bus to be certified and operating in the United States. With a clean-sheet design, the BEAST offers more standard features like a monocoque chassis, full air-ride suspension, air-disk brakes, and pass-through storage. By integrating the body and chassis together to form a composite structure, GreenPower school buses have increased strength as well as a better weight distribution when compared to the competition. Furthermore, the BEAST is backed by an unprecedented 10 year, 100,000-mile drivetrain warranty. GreenPower can provide the largest battery pack and highest seating capacity on the market without any negative effect on overall performance. In fact, GreenPower only uses the best of breed technology and has partnered with top-tier manufacturers that provide the highest quality products. The BEAST will give an unrivaled experience for students and drivers.
