Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL expects there to be 306 Euro V and 50 Euro VI New Routemasters(NRM) by the end of the calendar year.

These vehicles will continue to significantly lower the emissions profile of the London buses fleet. A Euro V NRMs emits 80 per cent less nitrogen oxide (NOx) than the average Euro V diesel-electric hybrid, while a Euro VI NRMs emits 95 per cent less NOx than the average Euro V hybrid.
