BBS takes delivery of Setra intercity coaches with Euro-VI drive

BBS Brandner Bus Schwaben in Gunzburg has added three Setra S 417 UL intercity coaches to its fleet. The new Setra MultiClass 400 vehicles are already equipped with Euro-VI engines - this means that the Swabian bus company is already relying on drive
technology today that will not be prescribed by law until 2014. The three-axle coaches will help the company, which has been a Setra partner for many years, to assume a pioneering role in terms of the environmental compatibility of its regular bus services in the districts of Gunzburg, Neu-Ulm, Augsburg-Land and Unterallgau.

"As a future-oriented company, we consider it self-evident that we should have the latest bus technology in our fleet as standard," said Managing Director Josef Brandner at the official handover of the coaches at the Ulm-based Daimler brand's customer centre in Neu-Ulm. "Our passengers can depend on being able to travel in the most environmentally compatible buses that are currently available on the market for this segment."

The three S 417 UL models seat 61 passengers and are equipped with the in-line, six-cylinder OM 470 engines from the newly developed MB Blue Efficiency Power engine series. The powerful 265 kw (360 hp) engine with a displacement of 10.7-litres already meets the Euro-VI emissions standard today, and guarantees its operators a high level of economic efficiency, due to its long service life and low consumption of fuel, AdBlue and engine oil.
