Total crap......

The electric bus company, which has been hailed by the Biden administration as the future of mass transportation, has seen its stock plummet in the last month as reports pile up about problems with its product. In Philadelphia, mechanical failures and weak battery performance forced city officials to shelve buses received as recently as 2019. In Duluth, Minnesota, the buses were taken off the road because their brakes couldn't handle the city's hills. The publicly known failings of Proterra's buses have not deterred key members of the Biden administration, including the president himself, from touting the company on multiple occasions.

Biden is just an idiot. He needs to be phased out, himself.

“Biden Buses being phased out

the above “title” is misleading, either deliberately or on purpose-?

The above title says “being phased out”; when the correct term should have been, “considering”

The difference is so slight that you may not have caught the con.

The list of mechanical failures didn't leave much doubt in my mind these electric buses that
Racist Joe touts are on their way out.

No doubt many companies have failed in the past when the product they sold is now normal.

Yeah thats not their prob

Maybe it's not. That's not my point.

My point is that just because a company fails, because a company doesn't something badly, doesn't mean the whole product is bad. Others might do it better.

The problem is...........
The company obviously didn't do any testing of these vehicles before producing them to sell.

Of course, this whole thing could be a scam. It's not unheard of for politicians to pay a company to produce something to fail on purpose.

Horses(Morgan's the best!) & buckboards are waaaaay less expensive & easier on the tax payers than the half baked enviro bus fiascos. The down side is the methane pollution which unfortunately exits the rear of the horses @ high velocity & enters the drivers compartment. Grass hay methane aroma is tolerable to most drivers, but alfalfa feed horses put out some pretty stout gas fumes for sure!
