2020 MARKET ANALYSIS
Alexander Dennis continued to dominate the shrinking single-deck market despite deliveries of its Enviro200 diesel falling by nearly half to below 250. No other producer sold more than 40 vehicles.
The most important Enviro200 customer was Go-Ahead, which received more than 80 of which 75 were for a new council contract to provide services in Cornwall. Other significant customers included Wellglade (32 for Trent and Kinchbus) and a further 15 for Blackpool Transport.
Deliveries for Transport for London (TfL) contracts were confined to 16 for Metroline and 13 for RATP, as most contracts specifying new vehicles were switched to electric buses. That compares with 127 Enviro200 diesels built for TfL services last year. Stagecoach’s drastically reduced capital investment brought only six into its regional fleet (five at Dunfermline and one at Banbury), against over 140 in 2019.
