This vehicle, which carries a light green base livery, has arrived into the Go North East fleet, and is currently being prepared for service at Saltmeadows Road Depot. Once prepared for service, it is expected to be allocated to Chester-le-Street Depot, for use on services 8/78 (Sunderland - Chester-le-Street - Stanley - Consett), representing an investment of approximately £2,500,000. It is the Micro-Hybrid version of the Wright Streetlite, which is 11.5m in length. The Micro Hybrid recovers energy lost from braking to power the vehicle electrics and compressed air systems, saving up to 10% in fuel costs. The interior specification for this batch of vehicles has been completely overhauled: they feature Esteban Civic V3 seating complete with e-leather; two-colour Tarabus 'Wood Effect' flooring; and blue accent lighting, which is fitted underneath seats, to provide extra light on the gangway.
