Two more Scania Touring coaches for L&I Coaches
L&I Coaches of Margate, Kent, has recently taken delivery of a further two Scania Touring HD coaches. Both of the 12.1-metres overall length vehicles are based on Scania's K 360 IB4x2 360 horsepower chassis and equipped with Scania's fully automated Opticruise gear selection system, Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control and Advanced Emergency Braking.
Interior fitments include 53 Kiel passenger seats with magazine nets and seat-back tables, audio and video equipment, climate control. To enhance safety in operation, both vehicles have reversing and centre door cameras and Xenon headlights.
Together with the above features, L&I Coaches will benefit from the vehicle's inclusive repair and maintenance programme, which will be managed by Scania Maidstone. As with all new Scania coaches sold to retail customers, driver and technical training is offered and Scania's Monitor telematics solution is included for ten years on a complementary basis. Monitor records driver and vehicle performance and sends the information it gathers direct to the customer by email.
Richard Lawrie, Regional Account Manager for Scania Bus & Coach adds “Its excellent to be assisting L&I's Laurence McGregor as he continues to update his fleet to Euro 6. Following the success of his 2018 Scania Tourings, he has opted for the same vehicle but with 53 seats this time in order to give further passenger flexibility.”
