A total of 79 Europeans were built, of which all but five were for companies owned by British Bus subsidiaries. These companies were Luton & District (taking 27), Northumbria Motor Services (20), Midland Fox (14), Clydeside 2000 (eight) and Derby City Transport (five).

The remaining five were sold to Yorkshire Traction.

The European was superseded in late 1996 by the Flyte.
