The all-electric Alexander Dennis Enviro500EV double deck bus delivers cleaner cities, quieter streets, zero emissions and lower operating costs. It reduces noise pollution and its full independent front suspension provides a smooth and comfortable ride for drivers and passengers alike. With rapid charging batteries located in the chassis and at the rear of the vehicle for a low centre of gravity and great stability, it features a reversible HVAC system incorporating an all-electric heat pump which increases the vehicle range on cold days and a hub motor axle to reduce weight and improve efficiency.
Designed for the U.S. and Canadian markets, the Enviro500EV is built in North America and is Buy America compliant.
The Enviro500EV combines zero emissions with high passenger capacity, offering up to 80 seats in the fully air-conditioned interior. With its low floor design, accessibility is a priority with two ADA-compliant wheelchair positions on the lower deck.
The all-electric double decker is customized for different operational conditions and range requirements with a modular battery system that is charged via a CCS1 standard plug. Overhead pantograph solutions are optionally available to suit opportunity charging strategies.
