New Enviro400
There has been a sighting on the motorway of a new Enviro400 MMC model destined for London, here are the pics.

That's a great find Jamaal.

It looks to be wearing some kind of front and rear mask to disguise the lines of the body, like car manufacturers do when they test prototypes - particularly clear around the front.

It's a strange design, definitely - although it looks better resolved at the rear now I think, even with the huge bonnet vent.

It's not Caetano lights at the front - it's Plaxton Centro ones! And the top deck window now looks very similar to a President.

Difficult to know exactly what's changed as the vinyls do a good job of breaking up the body lines.

Well here it is the new Enviro 400. My first impression was actually WTF is that, However i also had this impression when Wrightbus changed the front of the pulsar 2, Eclipse2 and Gemini 2 I disliked it at first but it grew on me then i liked it better than the first design. The same goes for this was unsure at first but now i really like the front certainly a grower for me anyway. Smile

The front looks like a weird mix of the MCV DD103 and those BYD single deckers in London, not a big fan at the moment.

Its still an improvement on the now old style enviro 400 which i kinda like the interior of but still don't like the front on the outside as it looks out of date in fact the old style enviro 400 especially the front looked out of date even when it was new, It looked more like a 90s design to me.

RE: New Enviro400
For me it looks very nice on first glance. Perhaps not as attractive as its predecessor but nowhere near as much of a step down as expected based on the photos of the demonstrator earlier in this thread.

I must say though, my view on styling is the opposite: for me it is the Wright models that look dated. I've always thought the Enviro400 was a very modern looking bus and was surprised they have been looking to change it. Internally, the Enviro400s' upper deck is a lot more spacious than the Geminis and hopefully they don't compromise that with this redesign.

Having said that, the Wright Gemini 2s with DB300 chassis at Speke do rattle a lot less than their Enviro400 counterparts at Bootle and offer a smoother ride overall. The same applies with Pulsars versus Enviro300s. I'd say that in general the Enviro family looks better than Wright products, but rides worse. Perhaps that will change with these new models.

Agree 100%
Really like that new front end. Looks loads smarter, the Enviro400's currently in service all look like a product of the 1990s,that new design really brings them into the present!
