The bus might have periods where it is standing still, stopped, but continues to use power? Or they simply plan on only using 80% of the pack's energy to prolong its life.

No word on top speed (unless I missed it) but a usable range of 70 miles or so. Quite impressive and ideal for tootling around congested York - or any other city for that matter. The converting company, Magtec, have some other interesting products on their site including a 120kW in-hub motor http://www.magtec.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=20&Itemid=158&lang=en ). I'm a bit confused as to why it only gets 70 miles or so range if it does 0.67 miles per kWh... Looks like a company to keep an eye on.
