These new Electroliner buses will be manufactured at Wrightbus’s headquarters in Ballymena, Northern Ireland.

Marcos Hart, operations director for Arriva UK Bus, said:

We are delighted to once again be partnering with Wrightbus to welcome a further 34 zero-emission electric vehicles into our growing electric operation. These state-of-the-art, high-spec buses will arrive at our Enfield depot in early 2024 and will serve passengers on Route 279, taking our London fleet to over 100 electric vehicles across our four electrified garages.

In addition to enhancing the onboard experience for our passengers, this investment is a further demonstration of our commitment to delivering a sustainable and environmentally friendly bus network, while supporting TfL’s long-term vision for London.

The Electroliner vehicles have been deemed the world’s most efficient double-deck battery electric bus according to UTAC assessments using the ZEMO-accredited Ultra Low Emission Bus (ULEB) test.

Jean-Marc Gales, CEO at Wrightbus, said:

Our continued partnership with Arriva is hugely significant in the drive to zero-emission public transport. Seeing the impact our fleet is having on communities is incredibly gratifying and we must continue to strengthen the case for further support for zero-emissions transport to ensure net zero targets are met.

We are consistently at the forefront of zero and low-emission travel and look forward to progressing future orders with bus operators across the globe. We can’t wait to see even more of our buses in operation, which will help passengers enjoy comfortable and cleaner transport.
