Sam Greer, Engineering Director for Stagecoach, said:

“We are pleased to be adding a further 48 zero-emission buses to our fleet in London.

“The investment we are making in zero emission vehicles will support our strategy to having a zero emission bus fleet across all our operations by 2035.”

This contract builds on Wrightbus’ ongoing success following several recent orders, including a 25.3 million GBP contract to supply 117 battery-electric vehicles for First Bus across the UK.

Ian Gillott, Managing Director (Parts and Services) at Wrightbus, said:

“We are delighted to announce another significant order for Wrightbus. It has been a real team effort between Wrightbus and Stagecoach to deliver this exciting deal.

“We can’t wait to see these buses in operation in London, which will help passengers enjoy comfortable and cleaner transport.

“Our electric buses - the GB Kite Electroliner BEV and the StreetDeck Electroliner BEV, which is the world's most efficient double-deck battery-electric bus - are manufactured and assembled at our Ballymena factory, which means support for jobs in NI, and wider across the UK through our domestic supply chain.”
