Design Line Corporation
DesignLine Corporation is a manufacturer of coach, electric and range-extended electric (hybrid) buses founded in Ashburton, New Zealand in 1985. Initially it was a manufacturer of tour coaches. In the 1990s it diversified into conventional transit buses and then added hybrid city buses in the late 1990s. It was acquired by American interests in 2006, and DesignLine Corporations' headquarters was relocated to Charlotte, North Carolina.
DesignLine Corporation is no longer affiliated with the DesignLine operations in New Zealand, which was placed in liquidation in 2011 and has since been sold to a Malaysian-controlled joint business venture who operate it under the name DesignLine Bus Pacific.
