In a video created by the Montreal Gazette, the STM revealed their new 100% electric powered buses.

One new electric buses will be hitting the streets next Monday, but just for testing on 8 different routes until April 25th. The bus is on loan from a Chinese company and is being tested for effectiveness. A final model has yet to be chosen.
