Electric Buses to be part of Nextport’s $700m NSW E-Vehicle Manufacturing Plan
Nexport, the electric bus subsidiary of Cleantech investment giant True Green, has announced a $700 million plan to establish an electric vehicle manufacturing base in the NSW Southern Highlands. This comes as the NSW Government aims to acquire 8,000 new electric buses to transition the fleet to one that runs on cleaner energy.
The manufacturing site is proposed for Moss Vale, as it sits between Sydney and Canberra; the cities showing the strongest support for a transition to all-electric bus fleets. Trials for these e-buses have been going well underway in Leichardt.
