Introducing the Orion E, the new zero emission all-electric low floor bus from Mellor.
With a range of 100 miles on the super-efficient LiFe PO4 batteries, the Orion E isn’t just environmentally friendly, it is also incredibly economical to run with every mile costing significantly less compared with an equivalent diesel vehicle.
Combining an environmentally friendly all-electric drive system with class leading step entry and flat floor throughout, the Orion E provides accessible and versatile transport for all.
With flexible charging technology, minimal in-service maintenance requirements and unique driver interface technology, the Orion E has innovation in its DNA.
The Orion E is available with rear doors or a solid back, fixed or removable seats plus a myriad of flexible options such as destination equipment, access ramps and heating options. The Orion E is fully configurable to suit the needs of local authorities, stage carriage operators, community transport groups and Dial-A-Ride organisations.
