Stagecoach has ordered 41 Alexander Dennis electric buses to operate on behalf of Transport for London (TfL).

This order consists of 24 Enviro100EV small buses and 17 Enviro400EV double-deckers, which will be delivered in early 2025.

Nick Owen, Director of Buses at TfL, said:

London has the largest zero-emission bus fleet in Western Europe, with more than 1,400 buses, and we look forward to welcoming these 41 new Alexander Dennis electric buses on our routes. When the entire fleet is zero-emission, we will have saved around 5m tonnes of carbon.

The next-generation Enviro400EV double-decker is 10.5 metres long and can seat up to 62 passengers.

Meanwhile, the Enviro100EV is classified as one of TfL’s smallest single-deckers, offering 21 seats. Its compact dimensions, 8.5 metres in length and 2.35 metres in width, allow it to easily navigate narrow residential streets.

Paul Lynch, Managing Director of Stagecoach London, said:

We’re looking forward to operating these buses which promise a step forward in range and longevity. They add to our rapidly growing electric bus fleet as we play our part in delivering TfL and the Mayor’s targets for London, as well as our own Stagecoach commitments on carbon reduction.

Over the UK Bus Cycle, the Enviro400EV has a benchmark energy efficiency of 0.67kWh/km, while the Enviro100EV has a benchmark efficiency of 0.54kWh/km.

In addition, the models have a warrantable energy throughput of up to 1.6GWh and 1.2GWh respectively.

These next-generation Alexander Dennis electric buses also meet the latest iterations of TfL’s Bus Safety Standard.

Ben Werth, Group Sales & Business Development Manager for Alexander Dennis, said:

Before the first London-specification demonstrators have even hit the road, orders are in place from Stagecoach as the group recognises our next-generation buses’ potential to deliver outstanding total cost of ownership with an electric drive system that could last two full TfL route contract terms without a need for battery replacement.
