Go-Ahead London Trials Wrightbus Electroliner

Bus operator, Go-Ahead London, has announced it is currently trialling the use of Wrightbus’ StreetDeck Electroliner.

The first electric vehicle (EV) built by Wrightbus, the double deck battery-electric bus has been operating throughout the UK to provide potential operators a chance to witness the vehicle in action ahead of a future rollout.

The StreetDeck Electroliner is the first electric vehicle manufactured by Wrightbus
Jean-Marc Gales, CEO at Wrightbus, said:

“We’re looking forward to seeing the world’s most efficient double deck EV bus on the streets of London to show everyone what it is capable of. We’re confident both our customers and passengers will enjoy the experience.

“We’ve created the most efficient vehicle by combining optimum power with a class-leading rapid charge, meaning our electric bus spends more time on the road than any other.

“This vehicle brings an interesting new dimension to bus technology, offering transport operators a choice to help address the world's environmental challenges.”

Since its launch in 2021, the vehicle has been ordered by both Arriva and Abellio.

Chris McKeown, Go-Ahead London's Engineering Director, said:

“As the UK's largest and most experienced electric bus operator, we are working with Transport for London and our innovative supply chain to deliver a sustainable, zero-emission future for the capital's iconic red buses.

“Go-Ahead London has a long association with Wrightbus and I welcome the opportunity to trial the StreetDeck Electroliner, which we will robustly evaluate over the coming months.”
