School and transit bus manufacturer Pegasus Specialty Vehicles has signed an agreement with bus dealership Creative Bus Sales to sell its Type A school buses and electric shuttle and paratransit buses through Creative Bus Sales’s network.
Pegasus will build the electric buses using the Zeus Electric Chassis Z-19 cab-chassis platform.
A Pegasus Bus on a Zeus Z-19 platform features all-wheel drive, independent suspension, and a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of up to 19,500 pounds. Its electric motors generate 290 horsepower and 2,040 foot-pounds of torque, enabling it to operate in inclement weather and on challenging topographies, and allowing it to transport a payload of up to 8,000 pounds within a standard range of 150 miles.
“We’re excited to take on the Pegasus product line, and the timing couldn’t have been better,” said Jason Hohalok, Sales Manager for California for Creative Bus Sales. “Our customers have been looking for new and better solutions, and the Pegasus Type A school buses and electric shuttle and paratransit bus bodies on the Zeus Electric Chassis provide exactly that.”
