IC Bus completed an order of CE Series propane-powered school buses by Cook-Illinois Corp., a family-owned and operated school bus contractor in the United States.

According to IC Bus, its CE Series, which features Power Solutions International engines, is designed for the school bus industry and provides diesel-like performance with higher torque at lower speeds. The high-torque, low-speed design allows for easier start-and-stop applications, as well as greater hill-climbing capacity and reduced engine revving, the company adds. The buses also feature hydraulic breaks.

“As a leader in developing alternative powertrain solutions for the school bus industry, we are excited to introduce our propane-powered CE Series school buses to the Cook-Illinois Corp. fleet of nearly 2,700 vehicles,” says Trish Reed, vice president and general manager at IC Bus. “Cook-Illinois Corp. is a prominent school bus operator that has moved from diesel-powered school buses to focus on providing greener transportation services to its customers. We’re proud to partner with Cook-Illinois Corp. in supplying an environmentally friendly, reliable and safe solution powered by the Power Solutions International 8.8-liter LP propane engine.”
