Scotland: 41 Yutong Electric Buses Delivered to McGill’s

Pelican Bus & Coach has delivered an additional 41 Yutong electric buses to McGill’s Bus Group for operation in Scotland.

The new vehicles increase McGill’s fleet of Yutong electric buses to 96, following the delivery of the first 55 vehicles in November 2021.

Pelican has delivered a further 41 zero-emission vehicles to McGill’s Bus Group

This order was partly funded through the Scottish government’s ScotZEB scheme.

Ian Downie, Head of Yutong Sales for Pelican Bus & Coach said:

“The product is tried, tested and very reliable. It thrives in Scotland’s operating conditions, irrespective of the weather! The customer centric specification that McGill’s has developed will ensure that more passengers will enjoy quiet, air conditioned journeys whilst encouraging modal shift onto public transport.”

This latest delivery includes the 250th Yutong battery-electric vehicle that Pelican has supplied in the UK, as well as the 134,000th zero-direct-emission vehicle manufactured by Yutong.

Ralph Roberts, CEO of McGill’s Buses, said:

“Pelican and Yutong have been the perfect delivery partners in our journey to net zero. When we were researching our options at the beginning, the Yutong product stood out head & shoulders above the rest. This milestone of 134,000 zero-emission vehicles lets everyone understand why – there is real strength in depth in the product.

“The Yutong zero-emission buses cover over seven billion miles per annum worldwide and rising every year – this kind of success is built on performance, not chance. We are very happy with the product, with the service delivery and with the relationships .”
