The world's first Euro6 biogas powered double decker has become even more stylish with the City body that is sure to turn heads. The Enviro400CBG City is an attractive alternative delivering more sustainable transport. It has been developed in partnership between Scania and ADL.
Scania's N chassis comes equipped with the OC09 101/280 Euro6 gas engine, which is based on a modular platform using otto combustion technology. These buses emit hardly any particulates or hydrocarbons and generate a CO2 saving of 84% as well as tailpipe emissions that are cleaner than an equivalent Euro 6 diesel double deck bus. The bio-methane used to fuel the buses is sourced from food, farm and sewage waste which would otherwise go to landfill or not be reused. This produces high volumes of methane when left to decompose naturally. As methane is one of the most potent greenhouse gases, biogas buses reduce the amount of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere.
The Enviro400CBG City has ADL's new body which brings together elegance and practicality and ushers in a contemporary new look that features a raft of sophisticated, yet pragmatic design solutions, all of which give it real street presence.
Light, airy, welcoming. Three words that describe the experience passengers can expect on entering the new Enviro400CBG City. They will be struck immediately by the wide entrance and aisles, the ample space for buggies and wheelchair users, the natural light that floods in through the wrap-around front windows, the glazed stairwell and the sky-view glazing at the rear of the upper deck.
The Enviro400CBG City features a raked, wrap-round driver’s windscreen with the wipers recessed at the top, a stylish glazed stairwell, and a shallow upper deck windscreen which, combined with other design features, significantly reduces solar gain in warm weather and allows operators to brand the vehicles more prominently to aid customer recognition.
