Mellor will reveal its new Sigma 9 and 12 buses for the very first time in Brussels at Busworld Europe 2023. Mellor’s attendance at Busworld comes after the business has experienced exceptional growth in the last three years.  

“The Sigma 9 requires just 60% of the battery power of the average single deck bus and with two battery options, offers customers choice and flexibility. Distinguished by its narrow width of just 2.35m and lightweight construction, the 60-passenger, Sigma 9 is a linchpin in Mellor’s 6-model Sigma line-up”, the manufacturer states.

Mellor’s new Sigma 12 will also be on display for the first time at Busworld. With capacity for over 80 passengers, Sigma 12 marks Mellor’s entry into the high-capacity city bus market. Available in two- and three-door models, and Class I urban, and Class II suburban configurations; Sigma 12 will accommodate different passenger and customer profiles with multiple layouts to choose from, a stated range of up to 400 kilometres and a single door for right-hand drive markets that meet UK requirements. 

Alongside the reveal of Sigma 9 and Sigma 12, Mellor will also be showcasing its Sigma 7 bus which has already achieved great success in the UK as well as key territories including the German city of Kiel, and Gothenburg, as well as successful trials in Jersey, Guernsey, Barcelona, Austria and Munich, amongst others. 

Gustavo Marqueta, Group Business Development Director of WN VTech commented: “Attending Busworld is an opportunity that we’re incredibly excited for. As the most well renowned and largest bus and coach exhibition in the calendar year, Busworld is a global platform to showcase our latest electric bus developments. We’re looking forward to connecting with potential customers and industry partners and learn more about how best our offering can meet their needs. There is a growing focus around sustainability in the transport sector and European countries have made incredible strides help reach net-zero targets. Busworld provides a platform for industry leaders to come together. From our experience in the UK and Europe, we are seeing a positive shift in attitudes and policies towards more sustainable vehicles. But there is still progress for us to make, and we’re looking forward to connecting with the other attendees to share experiences of leading the way in our respective transport markets.”
