Arrival, one of the UK’s largest unicorns, has revealed a zero-emission bus designed for ‘a new normal’.
Arrival says the new bus is equipped with features that ‘create an environment evoking a sense of space, cleanliness and wellbeing in a world with a heightened awareness of hygiene and personal space’.
The Arrival Bus will be produced in local microfactories in the UK which are designed to be capable of assembling all vehicles from the company’s portfolio.
Kwame Nyanning, Chief of Experience at Arrival, says: “We are working with cities to make every touchpoint within the urban transportation ecosystem not only better, but also more equitable and sustainable. Recent events have made it clear the world needs to take action now in order to improve lives and effect real change.”
Ben Jardine, Chief of Product for Arrival Bus, adds: “We are very excited to bring the Arrival Bus to markets around the world and make the passenger experience of bus travel a positive one. By working in partnership with businesses to develop the entire ecosystem around our vehicles, we are supporting their goals of making Public Transport appealing whilst achieving carbon neutrality.”
