South Korea rolls out first commercial electric bus service, we are green with envy 
The Seoul Metropolitan Government has just rolled out a world first by instating commercial, all electric bus service in the city. We’ve previously seen pilot programs and trials, but actual working commercial service has never been previously implemented. The program, developed in agreement with Hyundai Heavy Industries and Hankuk Fiber, and the buses themselves can run up to about 52 miles on a single charge (which takes about 30 minutes), and have a maximum speed of about 62 miles per hour. Though several other cities have small fleets of electric public transportation, Seoul has announced that half of its massive fleet of buses will be electric by 2020.

    Might be an issue in Melbourne… The bus route I use most often travels 83km [53.5 miles] each way.
