I am reliably informed that a second version of the Guangzhou bus model (GZBUS4002) will be released at the end of May. It will feature a different seating layout than GZBUS4001. It is believed that Mei Yi have will produce four different seating layouts for this casting. I am also informed that a second single-deck casting is likely for release at the end of the year.
