The Wright Solar Fusion is a type of low floor articulated bus body, which was built for Scania L94UA chassis and used in the United Kingdom and Ireland. A twin-axle rigid version, the Wright Solar of similar appearance is available for the Scania L94UB chassis.
The Solar Fusion was first intended for London with an example used as a demonstrator in 2000. It, however, like other bendy buses in London, proved to be unpopular and so was withdrawn from service in 2002. The design was then modified for provincial use with several buses ordered by First originally for use in Scotland. The body was deemed unsuccessful with more orders taken for its rival, the Mercedes-Benz Citaro. Production ended in 2005 for the Solar Fusion.
