What’s the Problem?

This recall affects 2015-2020 Lion C and Lion 360 electric and diesel school buses, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The bolts connecting the pitman arm and I-shaft to the power steering box on affected buses may loosen, resulting in a complete loss of steering control, NHTSA said. A complete loss of steering can increase the risk of a crash.

Lion Electric Co. is notifying owners and dealers will replace the pitman and I-shaft bolts. This recall began on March 12, 2020.

Lion Electric Delivers First Bus Funded by EPA’s Clean School Bus Program

In December 2022, the Lion Electric Company announced that it had delivered its first LionC zero-emission school bus funded by the U.S. EPA Clean School Bus Program to Mount Desert Island Regional School System in Bar Harbor, Maine.

Launched in mid-2022, the EPA program announced its first round of awarded school districts in October, nearly doubling the $500 million originally allocated to $913 million due to resounding interest in the program. Vouchers awarded in this round of EPA funding are conditional on buses being ordered from October 2022 to April 2023, and charging infrastructure being installed, and vehicles delivered by October 2024.
