Diamond’s newest models are going electric! According to Diamond Coach, making the switch to an electric bus can result in an 85% reduction in operating costs. Check out the benefits of going electric:

🛠️ Reduces maintenance costs by 66%
🚌 Eliminates almost all engine maintenance
💸 Local or state grants and incentives available
🌎 Keeps Mother Nature happy

Another benefit: quiet ride for passengers on the bus, and no exhaust fumes for passengers standing by the bus thanks to Lightning Systems zero emission all-electric powertrain for commercial fleets.
