The executive chairman of Wrightbus, which bought Wrightbus from administration in October 2019, said he could not yet confirm customer details.

It has a charge time of just two hours 45 minutes compared to the industry standard of four to five hours.
He told Business Telegraph: “We have officially received orders and I don’t know if I can talk about it yet. But we had a lot of enthusiasm for the Electroliner, because it’s the best there is.
