New Bus for London: Diesel Electric Hybrid
Transport for London (TfL) is one of the UK’s forerunners of responsible purchasing of road transport vehicles. The “NewBus4London" (NBfL) is the first bus specifically designed for London in over 50 years. It uses modern hybrid technology and emits less than half the CO2 and NOx than a previous London diesel bus in service. It is the largest order of hybrid buses ever placed in Europe. Over the lifetime of the buses, TfL expect them to produce a substantial savings.
