Your premier provider of new and pre-owned mid-sized coaches busses, shuttles, and vans

I would like to take this opportunity to express how grateful we are here, at Paonia Care and Rehab Center, in regards to Davey Coach and their employees. Everyone that helped us were very courteous and assisted us in working towards gaining our long term care resident's wishes to have a new bus. It took a lot of effort to put this together because of all the hoops that are required when you are a nursing home... We wanted to thank you for helping us gain this wonderful addition to our home. I can't tell you how much we all appreciate having this nice vehicle. Our resident's and employee's wanted to be sure to tell you they love Davey Coach and how happy you have made them... We would recommend your product and services as "superb" to anyone.

Lightning Hybrids

Lightning Hybrids is an innovative automotive research and manufacturing company, and very close neighbor to Davey Coach, just up I-25 in Loveland, Colorado.

The Lightning Hybrids conversion is an especially unique and versatile system because it offers not only a hybrid acceleration energy source, but also a driveline braking benefit.

Lightning Hybrids' hydraulic hybrid retrofit applies a hydraulic system to the driveline of a vehicle to regenerate braking energy. Hydraulic pumps and a lightweight accumulator store braking energy, and upon acceleration, the pumps become motors that use the stored energy in the accumulator to provide torque to power the wheels.

The fuel efficiency gains are achieved by regenerating the braking energy that is normally lost, and using this energy instead of (and in addition to, if needed) the internal combustion engine for acceleration.

The braking gains are achieved by providing resistance to the drive shaft during the braking process to supplement the standard service brakes, which in turn increases brake life and efficiency during operation.
