Mellor has seen strong initial demand for its innovative new Sigma range of zero-emission models.
High Demand for Sigma Range
The firm, which last December unveiled the widest range of electric buses from a single manufacturer in Europe, has secured orders from UK and Europe-based operators that span the entire Sigma line-up. Sales secured through competitive tender processes include Sigma 7 and Sigma 9 High Floor buses for the London Borough of Islington, Sigma 8 buses for Shuttlebus, Sigma 10 buses for Dumfries and Galloway Council, and Sigma 7 bus for Pinewoods Holiday Parks.
With configurability a key appeal for Sigma customers, Mellor has worked with the London Borough of Islington to develop a high-floor version of the Sigma platform for use on specific routes. The Mellor Sigma line-up is comprised of six models with overall lengths from 7 to 12-metres, ‘city’ and ‘rural’ specifications, and a broad array of specification options that broaden the range to more than 20 variants. Sigma’s lightweight construction, size-appropriate design, and efficient battery-electric powertrain, combined with a three-year bumper-to-bumper warranty, five-year battery warranty, and 15-year structural warranty, provides operators with a whole-life package that delivers an impressively low total cost of ownership.
