Published to the CV Show website on
04/04/2011

Optare has won an order from Midlands-based Rotala plc for 15 high-specification Versa hybrids, with £1.7m from the Government's Green Bus Fund.  The deal also includes three diesel powered Solo SRs and two Versas.  All the buses use Mercedes-Benz diesel engines.  In the hybrid models the engine works with the Siemens/Bluways  system using ultra-capacitors.  All the new buses are to the same high specification as four Solo SRs delivered last year for the Solihull-based Signature services.  They have Esteban leather seats, blue LED underseat lighting, Wi-Fi, CCTV and Hanover LED destination kit and an ACIS Real Time Information system.
