Vehicle to remain on Island throughout TT

An electric double decker bus is being trialled on the Island's roads over TT.

Chair of the Climate Change Transformation Board Daphne Caine MHK shared images of the vehicle on social media.

She says it has a range of up to 200 miles and to purchase the bus new with seats that meet the Isle of Man's specifications would cost around £500,000.

It comes after a Mercedes eCitaro single decker was trialled earlier this year.
