Electric Fuel Announces New E-Bus ScheduleOctober 07, 2001 by Jeff Shepard
Electric Fuel Corp. (New York) announced that its Las Vegas electric transit bus demonstration drive events have been re-scheduled to take place starting November 27, 2001, during the week after Thanksgiving, instead of in mid-October as originally planned.
Electric Fuel and its partners in the event decided to re-schedule the event in order not to divert the focus of the invited government, congressional and business leaders from devoting their time to dealing with the aftermath of the tragic events of September 11.
Yehuda Harats, Electric Fuel's president and CEO, said, "Postponing this important and exciting event was a difficult decision, but we need to make sure that as many people as possible can take part. We are introducing the first practical electric transit bus in history, which is the beginning of a new era of cleaner transportation and reduced dependence on imported petroleum."
