Shenzhen, China has already replaced all their buses with electric buses, and Shenzhen is much larger than KC.The only thing stopping electric buses (and cars) is the cost.
I think Proterra is in the lead with electric buses right now. They have a bus with an advertised range of 251-426 miles, but they were actually able to get over 1100 with it while hypermiling: https://www.proterra.com/press-release/ ... le-charge/
