    A city local to me (York - the original one) introduced some electric buses on a popular route. Initially they are proving popular and my local bus company have introduced one (to test) on a route in my town. This has been within the last 12 months or so.

    And now this! :unsure:

    Looks like another case of spontaneous human combustion on a bus.

    That will teach turncoats like you who just switched to all-electric vehicles. ;)

    Of course, we won't talk about the hydrocarbon fueled rigs that burn so frequently that it just isn't news unless it involves prominent or spectacular fatalities.
