Xplore Dundee takes delivery of ADL/BYD electric double-decks
Alexander Dennis and BYD UK have supplied 12 electric double-deck buses to operator Xplore Dundee where they will cut out emissions along one of Scotland’s most polluted streets.
Built in Scotland at ADL’s factory in Falkirk utilising BYD’s pioneering expertise in batteries and integrated powertrain technology, the Enviro400EVs are Dundee’s first zero emission buses and will run on Xplore’s service 28, serving the Dundee’s Lochee Road which claimed to be the fourth most polluted street in Scotland.
Managing director of Xplore Dundee Christine McGlasson says:: “This is a milestone moment for us at Xplore Dundee- we are so proud to bring these electric double deckers to Dundee, the first of their kind for the city.
“Our fleet is now three-quarters low or zero emission – and we’re not going to stop there. We believe that buses are the solution to pollution, and as part of the McGill’s group, we intend to continue investing in our fleet to provide a cleaner, greener public transport offering to the people of our Dundee.”
