Dealership Pelican Bus and Coach is acting as distributors of the new Yutong zero-emission battery electric double decker buses for UK market. Named as the U11DD, it is currently being demonstrated in the UK where established Yutong buyer Newport Transport has already ordered two examples.
One of the demonstrators is currently on trial with First South Yorkshire. Registered as UU11 DDD, it was recently being tested on their hilly route 51 between Lodge Moor and Charnock via Sheffield City Centre.
Our regular contributor Tony Wilson says it was difficult to capture good photos in the sunshine with too much glare and were, therefore, taken in the shadows of buildings etc. He also managed a ride on it which 'goes like the clappers and pulls like a train up hills, although the seats could be a little more comfortable.'
My thanks to Tony for the information and photos.
