ADL extends hybrid range

Alexander Dennis Limited says it will extend its “hugely successful” hybrid-electric bus range with a range of 19 tonne, 12m hybrid single-deckers.  The first, recently shown in Madrid and designed for Continental markets uses the same BAE Systems hybrid technology that ADL uses successfully in existing single and double-deckers.  The firm has developed the first of the new single deck hybrids with Tata Hispano, which will have exclusive rights to market the product in Spain and Portugal.  Collectively, ADL hybrid buses have now covered 2.2m km, cut fuel use and CO2 emissions by 30% with availability and reliability figure of some 97%.
