Deploying hybrid electric school buses gives various benefits to the school-going children and the pedestrians. It cuts down the maintenance cost of the vehicle, emits less amount of smoke, and enhances the efficiency of the buses. It can be said that using hybrid electric buses makes our environment healthier and one can enjoy the fresh air outside of the home. The hybrid electric bus is run by an electric motor and a small and normal internal combustion engine is used with it. To attain the highest level of efficiency, an electric motor is used with the help of a battery. It increases the efficiency of fuel.
Increase the use of hybrid electric buses- a new horizon of the pollution-free environment:
Recently, the usage of hybrid electric buses is increasing day by day. These kinds of buses make a good impact on the environment. The survey report states that this hybrid bus reduces the emission by 75% compared to diesel buses. The emission of nitrogen oxides of the hybrid buses compared to diesel buses is less by 30 to 40 per cent. The reports state that diesel hybrid buses emit the lowest amount of carbon monoxide than any kind of buses.
Every country adopts a greener policy for the sake of environmental well-being, the government adopts a policy for making a greener society as a whole. If any country starts its initiative by introducing hybrid electricity school buses instead of diesel buses, it will be helpful for the environment. Because diesel cars emit a large number of polluted particles and harmful gases like carbon monoxide which becomes the reason for asthma, cancer, and another disease. If we use hybrid electric cars in a large amount, it is not only helpful for our health but also the economy. If any country introduces hybrid buses on a large scale, it opens the door to employment.
Effect on the overall economy:
Even many companies will come forward to invest in this sector. As a whole, the economy will expand largely. Keeping in mind all the advantages of hybrid buses, now it is time to turn all its iconic school buses electric. The study reports stated that in China there is an increase in fine particulate pollution that aggravates the death rate of that country during the period of covid-19. If we electrify the nation’s school buses, the buses reduce the amount of emission of greenhouse gas by 50%, and as a result, the country can mitigate the possibility of health risks to some extent.
