Stagecoach, the UK’s largest bus operator, will put 55 electric Enviro400EVs on the road by the end of 2023. Part of Alexander Dennis’ zero-emission buses, the Enviro400EV is a battery-powered double-decker bus designed to carry large numbers of passengers around the city. These new buses can travel up to 260 miles on a single charge. 

Sam Greer, Engineering Director for Stagecoach, said: “We’re pleased to be continuing our commitment to move to a zero-emission UK bus fleet by becoming the first operator to make major investment in the new fleet of Enviro400EV buses to operate on our services in Oxford.
