    If these buses ply on the 10-lane Mysore-Bangalore Highway, with speeds very much less than a petrol-driven bus, what happens to the traffic!
    Given he wonderful quality of Indian manufactured batteries, where would these buses stop to get charged. As usual the assumption is with one charge at the source: Mysore/Bangalore, they will travel the whole distance without needing charging. But then , think about leaky Indian manufactured batteries!!
