NFI Group (NFI) has supplied five Enviro400EV zero-emission double deck buses for the new Stourton Park & Ride service in Leeds.

The buses have been supplied by the BYD UK and Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL) electric vehicle partnership, the UK’s leading electric bus producer.

ADL is a subsidiary of NFI, while BYD is a global leader in batteries, energy management and electric mobility.

The site at Stourton is the first solar-powered Park & Ride in the UK. It is also the third Park & Ride site in Leeds. The Park & Ride features 45 solar panels that cover the size of 18 tennis courts and generate the capacity to power the entire site’s electrical needs.

Other features of the new Park & Ride site include 26 fast electric vehicle charging ports and 4 rapid chargers totalling 30 EV charging spaces, secure bicycle storage, and 1,200 vehicle spaces.

Paul Soubry, president and CEO of NFI, commented,

“These new new zero-emission double deck buses take less than 15 minutes to smoothly and quietly deliver motorists from the site at the M621 motorway to the heart of Leeds city centre.”

The electric buses will be owned and operated by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and bus operator First Bus.

NFI is a leader in zero-emission mobility, with electric vehicles operating in more than 80 cities in five countries.

The company offers the widest range of zero-emission battery and fuel cell electric buses and coaches, and its vehicles have completed over 40 million EV service miles.

NFI Group Inc. (NFI) is up 1.13 per cent, trading at $24.20 per share as of 9:50 am ET.
