Optare has spent over £3million on product development this year. Chief executive officer Jim Sumner explains: “In periods of recession it is vital to maintain product development. Right now we need to support an operating industry under significant financial pressure, however we also need to give them new and improved products that will deliver savings for years to come and meet increasing environmental challenges.”

Developments include the long-awaited integral double-decker, to be launched next year, and work on the novel Flybus mechanical hybrid system.
