No need to apologize. I realized that it was a reference picture when I scrolled up to the previous posts. I edited my post after that.

Excellent Stuff, hope it starts soon. But why not have solar panels on the top of the bus charging the bus on the go? will it be very expensive? or will the charging be not that effective?

BMTC in Bangalore has put the plans of running electric buses on hold after the 3 month trial period. I will not be surprised if Gujarat follows suit.

High costs put brakes on BMTC's green bus plans

The cost of each bus is prohibitive. So they are looking for some company which would be ready to run it on a per km contract basis.

It is the same issue dogging even the personal electric vehicle industry (Mahindra Reva). They really need to invest in R&D to bring down the costs. Will the fossil fuel lobbyists allow it?
