From Wikipedia- "Lockheed Martin Control Systems (later acquired by BAE Systems)[8] developed the HybriDrive™ series hybrid propulsion system[9] used in the Orion VII.[10] In this system, the diesel engine is mounted transversely and drives a generator, and an electric motor drives the wheels directly.[11] A roof-mounted battery pack supplies additional power for acceleration and hill-climbing. The traction motor is rated at 250 hp (190 kW) continuous and 320 hp (240 kW) peak, offering a stall torque of 2,700 lb⋅ft (3,700 N⋅m). The traction motor also operates as a generator for regenerative braking, with the power returned to the battery pack.[10] According to a 2008 paper, the Orion VII hybrid buses, in service with New York City Transit since 2002, had per-mile maintenance costs comparable to CNG-fueled buses, with improved overall operating costs per mile mainly due to better fuel economy (3.00 to 3.22 mpg‑US (0.78 to 0.73 l/km) for the hybrids evaluated, compared to 2.33 mpg‑US (1.01 l/km) diesel equivalent for the CNG buses).[12]

500 Miles per tank, 100 Gallon Diesel Tank 5 MPG.
