ADL launches European Class II version of Enviro50018 October 2019

Alexander Dennis (ADL) is unveiling a European Class II inter-urban version of its three-axle Enviro500 double-decker at this week’s Busworld Europe event (Brussels; 18-23 October).

Visitors to the show can see a vehicle for Swiss customer PostAuto – one of 32 Enviro500 built for operators in Switzerland to date.

ADL has adapted the vehicle to meet the requirements of European operators, while maintaining benefits from common components and design structures shared with a fleet of over 17,000 double-deck buses around the world.

The European Class II configuration offers 74 high-back seats with seatbelts, as well as up to two wheelchair spaces and capacity for up to 40 standing passengers. With three doors, two staircases and a fully step-free lower deck, it facilitates rapid passenger flow.

The vehicle is 13m long and its overall height of 4m allows it to operate flexibly in all European countries.

ADL says it will boost its presence in Europe from 2020, when it will begin supplying a new fleet of double-deck buses to Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG) of Berlin. These will be built to a bespoke specification customised to the requirements of bus operation in the German capital, and will be 13.8m long and 4.06m high.
