Muirhead leather on electric buses

Alexander Dennis Limited is the UK’s largest bus and coach manufacturer and a global leader in designing and manufacturing double-decker buses.

Muirhead recently worked with Alexander Dennis, a long-time customer, and First Bus on a project for their Road to Renewables Roadshow. This involved showcasing a double-decker Battery Electric Bus all over the UK – starting in London before making its way north for the start of the COP26 summit in Glasgow.

The bus was kitted out with wireless charging, USB sockets, and three different Muirhead lowest-carbon leather stock colours on the seats – Bergamot, Pewter and Lilac Moon.

That same Muirhead stock leather appears on all the seats of Alexander Dennis’ single-decker Enviro 200 EV demo vehicle, which has been touring different operators around the UK.

These demo vehicles have been so successful that Alexander Dennis will be promoting a new Hydrogen vehicle built to the same spec as the electric vehicles, using Muirhead Egyptian Blue instead of Bergamot. This Hydrogen bus is due to tour the UK later this year.
