World Electric Vehicle Day – Custom Element
As part of the first World EV day, Custom Denning is launching the animated video of the Custom Element, a fully Australian designed and built Electric bus range, including battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell electric buses.
The first bus is currently in build and will be on the road in October for testing prior to its trial with selected operators. The first Element H2, the hydrogen fuel cell model, will begin production in October for December testing and trials.
The company aims to create a demand for Zero emission buses throughout Australasia that in turn will enhance skills in advanced manufacturing and bring jobs back to Australia. These buses offer competitive pricing against foreign imports whilst offering other economic benefits of local manufacturing, lower operating costs and health benefits over traditional fossil fuel buses.
Full production will see deliveries of Element and Element H2 available to customers from March 2021.
