I think that's a touchy subject.

Personally, I prefer to interact with a human who'd be driving the bus, not a computer. My opinion. Though I think many would agree.

Depends on the computer interface ;)

It appears that San Diego MTS is negotiating with New Flyer to buy 6 Xcelsior charge buses for a trial to see how the technology will work for them. This is alongside getting a grant for 11 Electric artics for use on Route 925.

New Flyer has announced TransLink has placed an order for 11 XN60s.

EDIT: The article has since been corrected to state there are 11 XDE60s on order, not 11 XN60 for Vancouver.

For the CNG, when and why was the XC__ renamed the XN__? Was it not to confuse with the electric XE? 

Also is there a valid source I can link to that reflects the change from XC to XN?

I think it is to distinguish it from Volvo's crossovers with the XC (Cross Country) prefix.

Why in the world would anyone ever confuse those two products?

When the XN60 prototype made its debut, someone on here took a picture of the build sticker which said XC60. If you go back far enough in this thread, you might be able to see it.
