Go-Ahead London orders another 141 ADL BYD electric buses

06 July 2023

BYD UK and Alexander Dennis jointly announced that their electric vehicle partnership has taken a repeat order from Go-Ahead London for a further 141 battery-electric buses, taking the total to be delivered to the operator during 2023 to 299 vehicles. This new order follows Go-Ahead London’s success in winning contracts for bus routes tendered by Transport for London.

In total, 169 BYD–Alexander Dennis Enviro400EV double deckers and 130 BYD–Alexander Dennis Enviro200EV single deckers are expected to be supplied by the end of 2023, with deliveries already under way. All the double deckers will be 10.8m long, while the single deckers will be built to three different lengths of 9.6m, 10.2m and 10.9m to suit different route

profiles and passenger volumes. The buses combine BYD’s Iron-Phosphate Battery technology and innovation in highly integrated electric powertrains with the expertise of Alexander Dennis for bodywork and assembly. They will take the total number of BYD–Alexander Dennis electric buses in the Go-Ahead London fleet to 577.
