The model - The first diecast model of a 12-metre 'New Generation' Enviro500 represented a Citybus Cityflyer example, being issued in December 2013 and produced by Model 1 (see 63301). With Kowloon Motor Bus taking delivery of a large number of standard layout examples, it was only a matter of time before a model appeared and on 16th January 2014 the release date of 27th January was announced. 

The bus - 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 MTR during 2013 and early 2014. 

The Kowloon Motor Bus order is believed to be for around 350 examples, although 22 of these are destined for the Long Win fleet. ATENU1 was the first to be registered on 23rd April 2013. ATENU70 was registered on 29th August 2013. By 27th January 2014, when this model was released, ATENU236 was the latest to be registered.
