wh/mile (for larger trucks)?

I've seen a lot of wh/mile numbers for homemade conversions, some for production cars, but I haven't seen any numbers for the electric buses that are being used in some parts of the world.

Does anyone have any wh/mile numbers for buses? I'm doing more theory calculations for my someday-very-far-in-the-future all-electric RV build.

I haven't seen any large vehicle efficiency stats. Have you surfed around the EV Album looking at the bigger vehicles? Or looked into Smith or Modec electric truck stats in the UK?

I haven't seen anything above a hummer in conversion albums.

As for Smith and Modec, they list the standard "8-10 hours charge time", and "60-100 mile range" but nothing about battery capacity, so it makes those points moot.
