High Point, N.C. — Daimler Trucks Tuesday celebrated the delivery of the 1,000th Saf-T-Liner C2 Jouley battery-electric school bus, aiming for a greener future.

The Saf-T-Liner C2 Jouley, a part of the Thomas Built Buses product range, was initially introduced in 2017, setting the trend for electric school bus transportation.

The recipient of this milestone bus is the Meriwether County School System (MCSS) in Georgia, USA. The addition of the Jouley buses represents a significant step for MCSS, marking its first foray into electric bus usage.

These buses will replace some of the district’s 46 diesel-powered vehicles, positively impacting the transport facilities for its 2,400 students ranging from Pre-K to 12th grade.

Thomas Built Buses, a subsidiary of Daimler Truck North America, has been leading the charge in the transition to electric vehicles. Utilizing advanced technology and expertise, the company has developed innovative and state-of-the-art electric buses.

This commitment aligns with Daimler Truck’s pledge to the Paris Climate Agreement, aiming to exclusively offer carbon-neutral vehicles in its core markets (EU30, USA, Japan) by 2039.
