This vehicle, which carries a two-tone black and green base livery, has arrived into the Go North East fleet. It is currently being prepared for service at Saltmeadows Road Depot. As part of the £4.3 million investment to upgrade the "Angel" service 21, which is currently allocated Wright Eclipse Gemini 2 bodied Volvo B5LHs, partially funded by a grant of £1,119,235 in Round 3 of the Green Bus Fund in 2012, Go North East has also ordered two dedicated spare vehicles to the same internal specification as the branded ones. This has been done to ensure customers on the 21 service can enjoy an undisrupted and continually high-quality service. These vehicles feature the latest technology, and are fitted with the third generation of Wrightbus' Micro-Hybrid system. This system allows a 21% fuel and CO2 saving; and is achieved by carrying through the technologies from the previous two generations of the Micro-Hybrid systems, as well as additional features being added, such as a third smart alternator to power new electric features such as an electric air compressor, which reduces engine load and fuel consumption. As well as this, the vehicles feature Euro 6 stop/start engines. Internally; they feature Esteban Civic V3 seating complete with leather and soft topper foam for added comfort; four tables on the upper saloon; two-colour Tarabus 'Wood Effect' flooring; and blue accent lighting, which is fitted underneath seats and on the stairwell, to provide extra light on the gangway. A first for Go North East; this batch of vehicles also includes a glass staircase, for added style and again providing further light on the stairwell. Like all new vehicles; they feature Wi-Fi, 'Next Stop' audio-visual announcements and USB connections as standard, though these vehicles also feature three-pin power sockets on the upper saloon tables.
