Pelican showroom work starts

Work has now commenced on a new showroom and preparation centre for the Castleford based Yutong dealership, Pelican Bus and Coach. It is scheduled to be complete in mid-November. On a recent site visit, Yutong’s Sales Manager for Europe and North America, Kitty Hu, said that ‘everyone at Yutong is delighted with the progress made to date in the UK and Ireland. The new Yutong facility will further deepen the ties between Pelican and Yutong and is a sign of both parties’ commitment to our customers.’

At the end of May, the total number of Yutong coaches on UK roads passed 250 and Sales Manager, Bob Elliott, is confident about the future, commenting that ‘many customers are returning to buy vehicles for the fourth or fifth time. We have recently introduced the service bus and the potential for us in the electric bus market next year is very promising with excellent results being produced by the first vehicle in Liverpool.’
