MB21BUS a Mercedes eCitaro demonstrator was heading south down the M6 this morning on the back of an orange heavy duty low loader.
Passed Wigan around 09:00
Interesting that they weren't prepared to drive it to wherever...........does it suffer from short range?

Previously with McGills I believe. Maybe it’s going to Evobus in Coventry, so a lot of miles!

It definitely spent some time at Transdev in Harrogate too - I saw it being driven up the A1 on delivery to Harrogate, so they've definitely driven it for at least some legs of its trip.

It's also been with Go North East (Fleet ID 9049) as I rode on it in service on 27/08/21.

Yes, it has been on demonstration with Harrogate Bus Co, Go North East and McGill’s so far. It’s now back with Mercedes, but I’d imagine it will appear elsewhere in time.
