Pelican Bus & Coach have confirmed that McGill's have ordered a further 41 vehicles, comprising ten E10 10.9 metre long zero emission buses and thirty one E12 12.17 metre vehicles.
The order follows the 55 vehicles delivered in August/September 2021, and their successful launch prior to COP26.
This is the first bus order resulting from the Scottish Governments Zero Emission Bus Scheme (ScotZEB) has been awarded to them by McGill’s Buses..
It is a testament to Ralph and the McGill’s team that with this order, nearly 25% of their fleet will be zero-emission – the majority of them Yutong. The successful introduction of the vehicles heralded a new level of calm and quietness for their passengers, and they have been widely welcomed by the travelling public. The driving range of the vehicles has exceeded expectations, even with the full electric air conditioning in operation during the winter months.
Ralph Roberts, CEO of the McGill’s Group responded:
Placing this repeat order with Pelican Yutong was a very easy decision. The first two deliveries of 55 zero-emission Yutong buses were completed on time, on budget and completely without the normal teething issues we have come to expect with new buses nowadays.
The buses have delivered exceptionally reliable availability whilst delivering class-leading levels of electricity consumption. Our customers are impressed by their high quality finish and that is good for business.
