 Scania K310UD - ASU class
Having trialled two prototypes, Kowloon Motor Bus placed an order for 20 further vehicles and these arrived in early September 2009 but did not enter service until January 2010. With the Salvador Caetano plant in Waterlooville, UK, (where the first two buses were built) having closed in 2007, it is believed these production models have been built in either Portugal or Spain - the windscreen confirms they were shipped from Barcelona.

Details of the two prototype vehicles, ASU1 and ASU2, can be found by following the links.
