Frontrunner Lowered Floor Minibus by New England Wheels

A Greener Alternative to a Typical High Floor Cutaway

While the world waits for a cutaway sized electric bus with a real-world useful range of more than 200 miles on a single charge, the Frontrunner® offers a “Greener Alternative” to a traditional fuel inefficient cutaway bus. With a GVWR of only 9,350 lbs. and a capable fuel efficient V6 engine, the Frontrunner offers up to 2.5X the mileage found in traditional dated cutaway designs.
