The Nova Bus LFSe+ is a battery-electric powered transit bus sold in Canada and the United States. The long-range compliment to the LFSe, the LFSe+ has a 594 kilowatt-hour battery capacity offering a range of between 340 and 470 kilometres.[1] It can be charged via a pantograph that is lowered from a charging station or with a CCS type 1 J1772 plug-in charger.

The LFSe+ was launched on October 14, 2019 at the American Public Transportation Association TRANSform Conference in New York City.[1] On January 26, 2021, Nova Bus announced their first order for the LFSe+. TransLink of Vancouver, British Columbia will take 15 LFSe+ buses, which will compliment the two short range LFSe buses they acquired in 2019.[2]
