Two early pre-production Euro VI vehicles from Alexander Dennis and Volvo entered service for "on the road" trials during the autumn of 2013. The first production Euro VI Hybrid Buses entered service with Stagecoach in the week commencing 10 March. We expect to have the first Euro 6 New Buses for London to be in service soon.
