Alexander Dennis Limited has delivered 16 of its Enviro 400 MMC buses to Southern Vectis, the Isle of Wight operator within the Go-Ahead Group.

“We are incredibly proud of our new vehicles. And this is good news for both commuters and leisure passengers wishing to travel across the island,” said Richard Tyldsley, general manager of Southern Vectis. “Customers here have been very clear about the enhancements they want to see on this popular service and we have listened to them. On-board technology includes USB charging points for smartphones and hand-held devices.”

In late 2017, ADL built its 10,000th Enviro400 by producing a 78-seat executive version to join its demonstration fleet, fitted with leather seats, wood-effect flooring, seat belts and skylight roof panels in order to demonstrate its versatility.

Colin Robertson, ADL’s Chief Executive, commented: “We have had many landmark moments with the Enviro400, from the launch in 2005 to the facelift in 2009, the major model change in 2014 and the introduction of the City version in October 2015. We have also seen it lead the way as a fuel-efficient, low emission diesel, as a diesel-electric hybrid and as a gas bus. While it was designed as an integral vehicle – and has enjoyed the vast majority of its success as such – we have also bodied it on Volvo and Scania chassis. In addition, although it was mainly intended for the UK market, we have had significant business wins with the Enviro400 in Hong Kong and New York.”
