Vantage Power designs and manufactures retrofit hybrid powertrains for buses, enabling operators to reduce their fuel consumption and emissions at a fraction of the cost of purchasing new hybrid buses. By designing the whole hybrid system - everything between the fuel tank and the wheels - optimal performance of every component is ensured, resulting in higher fuel economy, lower emissions, and greater reliability than other systems.
Our engineering team - drawn from the heavy-duty vehicle, Formula 1 and aerospace industries - is continuously challenged to develop innovative solutions, and this has culminated in a truly unique product offering. 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 £1.5bn 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.
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.
