8 & 11 Seat Electric Bus For Hire

The Rider people carrier is available as an 8 or 11 seater electric bus for purchase and both short and long-term business and event hire. A popular choice for event and festival organisers, golf clubs, theme parks, venues, hotels, caravan & holiday parks, The Rider is ideal for areas of high footfall.

Designed to transport up to 8 passengers including the driver, The Rider 8-seater includes comfortable bench-style seating with luggage storage available at the rear. The Rider 11 seater replaces luggage space for extra seating. A simple and intuitive driving experience, incorporating turf tyres and power steering makes it just as easy to drive and manoeuvre at a maximum speed of 15mph, as at 5mph event speed limits; where safety is especially important for high footfall.

Efficient, emission free, cost effective and whisper quiet, The Rider 8 and 11 seater people carrier is available for collection and for delivery at an additional charge. The perfect companion for The Rider 4-seater and 6-seater people carriers. Get in touch to hire.

      "Electric Wheels provided an excellent service, and high quality electric ATVs for use onsite at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The vehicles are powerful, reliable, simple to charge, and pay dividends in savings of cost for fuel and emissions. 5 stars!"

      “The electric buggies used on-site were perfect for navigating around our livestock and equine areas. We’ve used similar diesel buggies in the past, however the electric buggies were much quieter when navigating around animal enclosures. Loud vehicles can cause great distress for the animals.”

      "Great bits of kit and Electric Wheels were good to work with too. We got the UTV's in to trial and we were impressed with the battery life and capabilities. Would happily use them in the future."
