Optare is one of the most respected
names in the UK bus industry. Our parent, Ashok
Leyland, part of the Hinduja
Group, is ranked
within the top five global bus manufacturers.
We design, manufacture and sell single deck and
double deck buses, and offer a comprehensive
after sales service.
Building on a history of
innovation, we have developed a range of low-carbon
enhanced diesel technology, alternative fuel
hybrid systems, and even full electric drivelines
which are available across our entire product
range. And with reduced weight designs and
optimised drive systems we set the benchmark
for fuel economy
and CO2 reduction.
Our buses operate not only in the UK but in
Continental Europe, North America and further
afield. We also supply complete vehicles, CKD
or SKD kits, technology transfer and licensing
design is unique and features an easily demountable
This allows our buses to be future proofed,
giving operators peace of mind since, with
continued rapid advances in low carbon technology,
Optare buses can be upgraded to whatever is
the best system over the 10 to 15 year life
of the bus.
Optare plc is incorporated in the UK, which
is also its main country of operation.
