New energy buses, Hydrogen filling stations.
Study tip: According to a recent study by SCI, buses with alternative drivetrains already account for 6.8 percent of bus sales worldwide. Hybrids overtook buses powered by liquefied natural gas, and thanks to large orders from China, electric buses take third place. Manufacturers, who still refuse to get on board with electrification, only have themselves to blame.
