This model will be the first tri-axle battery-electric coach in passenger service in the UK, with the first vehicle set to be built in September 2023.

Simon Collins, UK Coach Sales Manager said:

“Drawing upon the well-established success of Yutong’s current electric vehicle line up, the GTe14 incorporates the same reliable CATL battery packs. The integration of ZF axles will be seamlessly integrated, complemented by an actively steered tag unit. Further refinements in specifications are currently undergoing careful consideration before Pelican can formally confirm its order with Yutong in the upcoming period.”

The Yutong GTe14 electric coach will measure 13.97 metres long and will offer a maximum capacity of 61 seats, alongside an onboard sunken toilet.

Pricing details for this vehicle have not yet been finalised and announced.
