Optare hybrids sail through certification tests

Optare says that diesel-electric hybrid versions of its Solo and Versa models have passed certification trials to satisfy the Low Carbon Emission Bus rules under the Green Bus Grant scheme.  The certification, independently done at Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire applies to all production Solo and Versa hybrids.  Millbrook's test cycle replicates London's route 159, the standard test for hybrid buses.  Glenn Saint commercial director at Optare says this means that these two models meet the standards for first Green Bus Fund scheme and the two that have followed more recently in England and Scotland.
