The 10.8m long vehicles are equipped with ADL’s award-winning SmartPack* efficiency technology which enables Low Emission Bus certification, as well as belted ADL SmartSeats, a digital tachograph, white LED destination equipment and bonded glazing.
Atlantic Travel provides luxury coach travel across the UK as well as local bus services and has an extensive fleet of vehicles to meet these requirements. This is the company’s first order with ADL.
Director Yasser Dean said: “These buses are low carbon and will complement our existing fleet perfectly as we continue to grow and develop our offer to our customers.”
ADL Sales Account Manager Charlie Miller added: “We’re delighted to have delivered these buses to Atlantic Travel who are a new customer for us. The vehicles will be a high quality addition to their fleet and we look forward to working with them again in the future.”
*SmartPack is centred on the smart management of alternator and air compressor, which are controlled to only charge during vehicle deceleration when they place no additional load on the engine. This is combined with engine stop/start technology, which ADL was the first manufacturer worldwide to bring to market in a diesel bus, as well as electrically-driven cooling fans and a vehicle mass reduction through structure optimisation. Enviro200 and Enviro400 buses with SmartPack are accredited as Low Emission Buses by the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP), in whose tests the technology delivers an 18% reduction in well-to-wheel greenhouse gas emissions compared with a Euro 5 bus on the Enviro400, and a 24% reduction on the Enviro200.
