Alexander Dennis wins 35 electric-bus order in Hong Kong
Alexander Dennis has been chosen in a competitive tender by Hong Kong’s MTR Corporation to supply 35 battery-electric Enviro500EV double-deckers.
MTR Corporation provides Hong Kong’s Mass Transit Railway urban rail system including a network of feeder bus services, for which it operates a fleet of 172 buses. Most of them have been supplied by Alexander Dennis from its Enviro200, Enviro400 and Enviro500 vehicle ranges.
MTR Corporation’s new fleet of Enviro500EVs will be delivered throughout 2025 and 2026.
The Enviro500EV’s 472kWh batteries are supplied by Impact Clean Power Technology from Poland. Power is transmitted through the heavy-duty Voith Electrical Drive System, which at 410kW peak and 310kW continuous output should give the buses ample reserves to cope with Hong Kong’s topography.
Andy Boulton, Managing Director Asia Pacific for Alexander Dennis, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen by the MTR Corporation as partner for the transition to zero-emission bus services. Our Enviro500EV has been designed from the ground up for the demands of Hong Kong’s world class transport system, ensuring that this transformational investment in cleaner transport will deliver for the MTR Corporation.”
