踏入二零一八年,愉景灣首先接收一架由馬來西亞順豐裝配其Lion's City Hybrid車身的A66中型單層低地台巴士,為更新車隊揭開了序幕。到了同年年中,作為是次更新車隊中的主力車款,十二架猛獅NL323大型單層低地台巴士,亦陸續付運抵港。

猛獅NL323對於愉景灣並非新鮮事,早於二零一零及一一年,愉景灣交通服務有限公司就先後購入兩架配順豐車身的NL323 (有關資料及圖片請參照另一篇章),相隔七年之後,再有同型號猛獅新巴士加入車隊,在機械配搭方面一台猛獅引擎搭配福伊特全自動波箱,與早年兩架新車如出一轍。全數新車最吸引乘客目光莫過於其所配用的車身款式,雖然車身供應商仍舊維持是馬來西亞的順豐,但所配的車身跟前文所述的A66一樣,為Lion's City Hybrid款式,同款車身最早見於新香港巴士的同型號巴士,並於隨後見於珀麗灣以及迪士尼穿梭巴士,至於整體載客量,二零一八年投入服務之新車較首兩架NL323多載兩名乘客。

首架新車於馬來西亞完成車身裝嵌後,於二零一八年五月十一日經水路抵港,而當完成驗車及出牌程序後,全數新車自同年八月中開始陸續投入服務。一如以往,全數新巴士繼承了它們取代的前輩編號,全數新車主要行走於愉景灣區內路線,偶爾支援接駁欣澳及東涌的區外路線。

除了符合歐盟五型排放標準新車外,是次訂單包括了兩架達歐盟六型排放標準新車,而且車身款式採用了新款的Lion's City Hybrid Facelift車身款式,首架歐六新車於二零一八年十月下旬出牌,取代了其中一架華廈神龍電動巴士(DBAY117),餘下另一架歐六新車DBAY198則於同年十一月投入服務,取代車隊中最後一架猛獅NL263的位置。

DBTSL took delivery of a single MAN A66 midibus with Lion's City Hybrid bodywork assembled by Gemilang of Malaysia in early 2018 and a further batch of 112 MAN NL323 , the major model during the fleet renewal scheme, was delivered in mid. of 2018.

MAN NL323 was not new to Discovery Bay as the first NL323 was already serving the community since 2010 (for details please refer to another chapter) and this batch of NL323 acquired shared the same mechanical specification with a MAN Euro 5 engine and Voith fully automatic transmission. Though the bodywork still supplied by Gemilang, the model fitted on these full-sized single decker chassis is Lion's City Hybrid and first of the bodywork type was seen with the MAN NL323 owned by NHKB. The Lion's City Hybrid bodied NL323 can accommodate two more passengers than the first two NL323 acquired by DBTSL.

The first of the batch was delivered to Hong Kong on 11 May, 2018 after completed it bodywork in Malaysia and they were gradually entered service since mid. of Aug., 2018 after completed all required process for registration. As in the past, they inherited the fleet number form the bus they replaced and they mainly serving the internal feeder service and sometimes supporting the external routes linking Sunny Bay or Tung Chung and Discovery Bay.

Two of the batch is an Euro 6 samples and with the modified Lion's City Hybrid Facelift bodywork, the first Euro 6 NL323 was registered in the end of Oct., 2018 as a replacement of the GDEV electric bus (DBAY117). Another Euro 6 version NL323 (DBAY198) was commissioned in Nov., 2018 and indicated the withdrawal of the last MAN NL263 in DBTSL fleet.
