Alexander Dennis adds in-house integrated electric buses

Alexander Dennis is expanding its zero-emission bus portfolio with the addition of new electric bus products fully designed and integrated in-house.

Available for customer delivery from late 2023, a new small bus and a new electric double decker will complement the successful products of the BYD ADL partnership, which will continue to be sold and supported.

Buses for the United Kingdom and Ireland will be fully built in Britain. Details and technical specifications will be released over the coming months.

The move brings Alexander Dennis’s range of battery electric buses in line with the company’s long-established strategy of offering its own, integrated vehicles alongside buses built on selected partners’ chassis.

Internationally, the new platform will be tailored to the requirements of cities, transport authorities and bus companies in each territory.

The recently announced order for Enviro500EV electric double deckers in Hong Kong will be part of this new generation of zero emission buses.

The battery electric BYD ADL Enviro200EV and BYD ADL Enviro400EV products built in partnership with BYD will continue to be offered in the UK, Ireland and New Zealand.
