Markus Villinger, managing director, Daimler Buses India said, “This product, being the longest coach in the country built with strong features, is sure to set benchmarks in ultra-luxury travel. We are excited to be offering a state-of-the–art vehicle concept to the Indian market. Inter-city travel becomes more safe, comfortable and modern.”

The coach is made of a unique ‘aluminique’ body design patented by the company which prevents corrosion and has a bolted construction which is more rigid and helps prevent cracking through welds. An intelligent ECU controlling the engine and a high pressure common rail injection pump offers high fuel-efficiency.

The buses get an active steerable tag axle which uses hydraulics to reduce the transfer of weight to the drive axle in heavy vehicles and also reduces the turning circle of the vehicle which makes navigating through sharp turns and bends effortless, they also gets Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and a strategically placed fuel tank for added safety.
