Issue

Issue: On certain LFS electric transit buses, the state of charge for the energy storage system could decrease unexpectedly. If this happens, there could be a sudden loss of power to the wheels and a loss of power steering assist. Safety Risk: A loss of power to the wheels could increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, a bus that is disabled could create the need for a transfer of passengers in an uncontrolled environment, which may create a risk of injury. A loss of power steering assist may result in a sudden increase in steering effort, especially at low vehicle speeds. This could also increase the risk of a crash. Corrective Actions: Nova Bus will notify owners in writing and provide them with directions for replacing the defective battery in the energy storage system.
