Vantage Power designs and manufactures hybrid powertrains for bus OEMs and as a retrofit solution for buses already on the road, enabling operators to reduce their fuel consumption and emissions at a fraction of the cost of purchasing new hybrid buses, and with a short payback period. By designing the whole hybrid system - everything between the fuel tank and the wheels - optimal performance of every component is ensured, resulting in up to 40% lower fuel consumption, 92% lower NOx emissions, and greater connectivity than any other system.
Vantage Power is partnered with:
- Ensignbus: The UK’s largest used bus dealer, selling approximately 1,000 vehicles a year, and a commercial bus operator with a 100-strong fleet. Ensign have been instrumental in testing and verifying the hybrid technology, and represent a significant route to market.
- Marshall of Cambridge: A £1.6bn turnover engineering powerhouse that has built over 5,000 buses alongside its aerospace, military vehicle and motor retail businesses. Marshalls bring key commercial and engineering support.
- Fablink: A high quality fabricator and system assembler for the likes of JLR, JCB and Perkins. Fablink manufactures and assembles the B320s across multiple UK sites.
Vantage Power was founded by Alexander Schey and Toby Schulz in 2011, both having been active in the electric and hybrid vehicle space since 2007.
