A couple weeks ago, Remy International chief executive officer John Weber offered up his one-sided opinion regarding the shift towards in-house production of vital hybrid and electric vehicle (EV) components. As a discouraged Weber previously remarked:
Two of the first 19 hybrid school buses have just been delivered to Manatee County, Florida as part of the Plug-In Hybrid Electric School Bus Project. Designed to test the viability of the new buses, a hybrid and a control bus will travel the same route, alternating every two weeks, for a period of two years which should equate to more than a million miles of service each.
