Mellor Orion E

The world's first small, low floor, zero emission bus

The Orion E is the innovative low floor Zero Emission minibus the world has been waiting for.

100 Mile Range
0 Zero Emissions
4.25 Hours Rapid Charging

Innovation

The Orion E is Europe’s most advanced all-electric low floor small bus. The latest in electric motor technology coupled with revolutionary drive train components provides seamless acceleration with torque and power in abundance.

Efficiency in its finest form

With a 100-mile range, the Orion E navigates marginal, rural and estate routes reliably, economically and eco-consciously, while fast charging keeps operators on the road – without harmful emissions.

Operator benefits

With a focus on quality and longevity, the Orion E is a small bus built to big bus standards including a full eight year accelerated durability test at Millbrook Proving Ground. Our approach to building buses with a long service life leads to exceptional total cost of ownership figures alongside minimal in-service maintenance requirements.

Accessibility

As well as all the operational benefits of the Orion E, the vehicle still offers flexible, highly configurable seating layouts, wheelchair positions and 250mm floor height providing class-leading ramp angle for safe, speedy boarding.
