 The first 'new-generation' 11.3 metre Enviro500s.... April-June 2013
   
In November 2012, Alexander Dennis unveiled its 'new-generation', three-axle Enviro500 double deck, and announced advance orders for more than 530. The stylish, new-look vehicle is lighter, more fuel-efficient and can carry 90 seated passengers. It has been designed specifically for the Asia Pacific market and 532 will be delivered to Hong Kong operators such as KMB, Long Win Bus, Citybus and MTRC during 2013 and early 2014.
   
The Citybus order is for 156 buses, 107 of which will be 12 metre and 49 will be 11.3 metre. 66 of the 12 metre examples are for Cityflyer operations.
