Unfortunately the lead customer for the bus is not ready to go public... Zero EV did announce two Tesla based kits (here) but they're not bus specific.

Next step is the racks in the main battery box and I hope we will get to that in the next couple of weeks (that said I'm also moving house, moving my office, and helping the Tesla tuning in Ireland this month :D)
