Workers assemble wiring components. A gigafactory produces the battery pack and drive unit; the EV can travel nearly 350 miles on a full charge. School buses are one of the worst pollution offenders. Lion Electric is the leading manufacturer of electric school buses in the U.S.
Manuel Morales learns to operate an electric school bus. School buses can save up to 23 tons of greenhouse gas emissions every year. A Tesla Model 3 undergoes the final assembly process; nearly half will be sold internationally. (Credits)
