London Gives Diesel Hybrid Busses a Go


It is said that the Americans are putting their money on hybrids, while the Europeans are counting on efficient diesels to reduce emissions and increase milage. I’m rather fond of both, so it’s always exciting to see the two come together. Only time will tell if London commuters will share my enthusiasm as Transport for London unleashes 6 diesel/electric hybrid busses as an experiment in clean people-moving. The 6 Wrightbus Electrocity series busses will run the loop between Elephant/Castle and Royal Albert Hall. Sadly, though the busses combine two energy sources, they are not double-deckers. They may not be quite as flashy as the Ford Reflex diesel hybrid, but maybe quite a bit more practical. Mind the gap! Or do they only say that on the Tube? :: Green Car Congress
