Wrightbus launches rapid-charge double deck bus
Wrightbus claims to be the only UK bus manufacturer to have hydrogen and EV double deck buses on the market following the launch of its StreetDeck Electroliner.
The double deck EV is claimed to have a charge time of just 2 hours 45 minutes in comparison to the industry standard of between 4–5 hours.
The Ballymena, Northern Ireland-based company’s hydrogen-fuelled bus is already in operation in Aberdeen, London, Belfast and Dublin, and is looking to expand globally. Wrightbus reports that it is currently in discussions with operators from the US, Australia, South America and the Far East as authorities race to hit net zero targets.
