Wrightbus launches rapid-charge double deck

06 July 2021/Categories: CILT, Industry News, Bus & Coach, Net-Zero


Northern Ireland bus manufacturer Wrightbus has launched its first battery powered vehicle – a rapid-charge electric double-deck.
 

Utilising a French battery pack which delivers 454kw and a 200-mile range, the Electroliner will recharge in two hours 45 minutes and cope with all routes, whether urban or rural.

Wrightbus CEO Buta Atwal said: “Wrightbus has the best brains in the business when it comes to technology and our StreetDeck Electroliner puts us squarely at the front of the pack.

“We haven’t weighed the bus down with a high battery volume just so we can say it’s got the most power or range; instead, we want to be the most efficient vehicle on the road so we’ve combined optimum power with a class-leading rapid charge meaning our electric bus spends more time on the road than any other.”
