SCANIA SINGAPORE DELIVERS SCANIA MARCOPOLO COACH TO C&P RENT-A-CAR
SINGAPORE 27th April 2017– Scania Singapore today delivered the Scania Marcopolo premium coach to C&P Rent-A-Car. The handover ceremony was officiated by Mr Mark Cameron, Regional Director of South Malaysia and Singapore, Country Manager of Scania Singapore and Mr Loi Win Yen, Managing Director of C&P Rent-A-Car, this morning.
C&P Rent-A-Car, incorporated in 1979, is one of Singapore’s oldest and most reputable vehicle leasing and limousine provider. The new Scania Marcopolo joins the company’s fleet of about 650 passenger vehicles, buses, vans and light commercial vehicles.
The investment into the Scania Marcopolo will also launch C&P Rent-A-Car’s entry into the VIP coach market within Singapore.
“The Scania Marcopolo represents the best in European-branded coaches, with a modern exterior and a luxurious, comfortable and spacious interior, ideal for our new VIP coach business,” said Mr Loi. “We appreciate the flexibility to customise the coach features – such as the addition of USB ports at every seat, a refrigerator, umbrella racks and corporate branding – to appeal to our discerning high-end customers.”
He added: “The choice of the Scania Marcopolo also came down to Scania’s reputation for reliability and its after-sales service, availability of spare parts and competitive pricing.”
Launched in Singapore in April 2016, the Scania Marcopolo offers operators an end-to-end transport solution – from sales to service and maintenance – for the first time in Singapore. It was designed to make ordering, owning and running it as productive and profitable as possible. With ordering, servicing and maintenance handled at one stop, operators such as C&P Rent-A-Car enjoy a faster service turnaround and maximum uptime.
“As a first-class luxury coach with the highest-quality exterior and interior fittings, low noise levels and full air suspension, the Scania Marcopolo will offer C&P Rent-A-Car’s VIP passengers a safe, quiet and pleasurable journey,” said Mr Cameron. “Its unique monocoque design has also optimised passenger comfort and luggage space for the ultimate passenger experience.”
For drivers, the Scania Marcopolo has an adjustable steering wheel and hanging pedals, which provide better ergonomics and comfort for a car-like feel. Its powerful engine with higher torque at lower revs also offers better driveability and fuel economy, while the Scania Opticruise provides best-in-class gear change and reduces clutch and synchromesh wear. Fuel consumption is further reduced due to its streamlined exterior design that lowers drag and its plug-welded joints for a stronger yet lighter body.
