Scania exhibits fully-equipped double-decker luxury tourist coach
Scania is exhibiting a double-decker luxury tourist coach at the UITP show in Hong Kong. This coach features a body by Ikarus built on Scania's new tourist-coach chassis. It is generously equipped and offers very high safety standards. There are disc brakes all round and a Scania retarder for safe progress, while independent suspension offers added stability and a smooth, comfortable ride.
Seat belts for all passengers
Advanced chassis design
Powerful 12-litre engine with high efficiency rating
The bus, which among its many unusual features has a glass roof, is built on Scania's K124 EB 6x2 tourist-coach chassis. It is powered by Scania's electronically fuel injected 12-litre straight six engine producing 420 hp. The transmission is the eight-speed Scania GR 801. The coach is equipped with the patented automatic Opticruise system and integrated retarder.
Owing to Scania's modular system, about 85 percent of the chassis and powertrain components are shared with Scania's truck range. This results in better and simpler access to parts and service.
The coach at the show has a 4.0 metre high and 12 metre long luxury double-decker body by Ikarus with 67 seats. Among the on-board features are a pantry, video, stereo and toilet, and a particularly powerful climate unit. All to ensure that the passengers enjoy the highest possible comfort on the move.
