Like Dennis Darts Diamond Bus has never purchased a new Enviro 200. All the current vehicles of this type have in the main been acquired with the recent purchases of fellow operators Hanson’s of Wordsley and Central Buses. These vehicles have entered the Diamond bus fleet still in their former owner’s livery but with Diamond bus fleet names added. The one exception to this is KX07OOW which has been in the Diamond Bus fleet since 2011. Initially the vehicle operated from the former Long Acre depot under the Central Connect license but as the company was merged with Diamond Bus the vehicle ended up at their Tividale depot. This vehicle has operated alongside mainly Volvo B7 vehicles on the key commercial routes such as the service 16 and 50 in Birmingham.  On 24th April 2022 Rotala acquired the Claribel Coaches operation when a further E200  joined their fleet. With the purchase of the Johnson's bus operation in May 2022 7 ADL E200's joined the Diamond bus fleet.

With the purchase of Midland Classic on  3rd August 2022 this brought another 11 E200 single deck vehicles into the  Diamond Bus fleet. Unlike  the vehicles that entered the fleet from Johnson's these vehicles had not  all been purchased new by Midland Classic. The oldest five all 12 plate vehicles are dual door and started life in London on red bus contracts.
