Euro Bus Expo 2014 - photo special 2

Last week saw the bi-annual Euro Bus Expo taking place at the NEC in Birmingham, two of our regular correspondents David Bell and Gregg Collins both went along to the first day of the event on Tuesday and have kindly provided an excellent selection of photographs featuring some of the new models present at the event.

Featuring in this part are vehicles from Alexander Dennis, Mercedes Benz and a very unusual looking bus from Nu Track.

Euro Bus Expo - ADL Enviro200
We'll start with the stylish brand new Alexander Dennis Enviro200 which was unveiled for the first time at the expo, the new Euro 6 model which is more lightweight and fuel efficient than its predecessor will go into production next year and will be available in an extended range of lengths between 8.9m and 11.8m (c) David Bell.

Euro Bus Expo - ADL Enviro400
Complementing the new Enviro200 at the expo were a couple of examples of the new Alexander Dennis Enviro400 which was revealed earlier this year, seen here is a demonstrator which carries the slogan 'designed by the industry, for the industry' signalling the operator participation that went into designing this attractive and efficient new model (c) Gregg Collins.

Euro Bus Expo - ADL Enviro350VE
The final Alexander Dennis vehicle to feature here is the new Enviro350VE 'virtual electric' which will be available alongside a double deck Enviro400VE version - to find out more about ADL's virtual electric vehicles click here to download their special brochure (c) David Bell.

Euro Bus Expo - Yourbus Citaro
Next up is one of our favorites, the all new Mercedes Benz Citaro - although available in Europe for a while now the UK right hand drive version has only recently made its debut with examples entering service with Trent Barton/Kinchbus in September, this one is for Yourbus and carries a new version of their livery (c) Gregg Collins.

Euro Bus Expo - McGills Citaro
Another new Mercedes Benz Citaro present at the expo was BX64 WJY for large Scottish independant McGills, by our calculations the new Citaro is the 4th generation of the bus since it's launch way back in 1997! (c) Gregg Collins.

Euro Bus Expo - z NuTrack Pulse
We'll finish this feature with a very strange looking vehicle... the Nu-Track Pulse, a high floor accessible bus built on the MAN TGL 10 tonne platform, with an expected capacity for up to 40 seats depending on wheelbase. Nu Track are based in Northern Ireland and are now part of the Wright Group (c) David Bell.
