Stagecoach launches electric double-deckers in Cambridge19 February 2020

Stagecoach has taken delivery of two electric Enviro400EV double-deck buses, which have gone into service this week in Cambridge as part of a project between the operator and the Greater Cambridge Partnership to improve local air quality.

Supplied by the BYD-ADL (Alexander Dennis Ltd) joint venture, Stagecoach is the first UK operator to use the zero-emission vehicle outside London.

The operator has specified the 4.2m low-height version of ADL’s City style body, seating up to 70 passengers. The 10.9m vehicles also provide room for an additional 13 standing passengers.

“Over the years we have steadily reduced the environmental impact of our diesel buses and now 32% of the fleet have the most efficient Euro VI engines,” says Michelle Hargreaves, managing director of Stagecoach East.

“The addition of the electric vehicles is a further step forward in our attempts to keep emissions to a minimum.”
