The New Flyer Industries XE35 is an expansion of battery-electric transit buses from New Flyer's Xcelsior line. Like the XE40, on a full charge, the bus has a range of approximately 457 kilometres (284 miles) and can be charged enroute with an OppCharge-compliant rapid charger or for extended down periods with a Combined Charging System plug-in charger. Both systems are supplied by Siemens.[1]

New Flyer had developed the XE35 by February 2018 and showcased it at their Vehicle Innovation Center in Anniston, Alabama. The New Flyer XE35 began its demonstration rounds with DASH in March 2018. DASH had previously trialed the XE40 in February.
