|The model - details of this model were received in August 2023 thanks to Jacky Ho. It is a specially commissioned model marking
the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Community Party. This event took
place in June/July 2021 and it is assumed the model was issued at that
time. It is the second model to be commissioned by Asiaray, the
previous one being a Christmas advertising model, offered as a prize in
a competition in late 2021 (ASIARAY-1). If you are able to provide any further details of this model, do please e-mail me.
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 is designed
specifically for the Asia Pacific market with all of Hong Kong's
franchised operators taking significant orders.
Motor Bus received 802 such examples, allocating them to the
ATENU class and becoming the company's largest ever vehicle type.
ATENU1 was first registered on 23rd April 2013 and ATENU802 being
registered on 23rd November 2015. Subsequent deliveries were of the
'facelift' version, although still carrying the ATENU classification.
