Scania to deliver 360 city buses to Malaysia

Scania will deliver 360 city buses to the state-owned company Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (Prasarana). The buses will operate in the city of Kuantan and in the capital Kuala Lumpur.

"Scania buses and coaches are renowned for their fuel economy, reliability,
safety and comfort. Each component is engineered to heighten the performance of the vehicle. With our new engine platform, Scania buses are now capable of higher torques at lower revs and even lower fuel consumption. Each model can also be customised in terms of passenger capacity, seating plans, comfort levels and other key criteria as required," said James Armstrong, Managing Director of Scania Malaysia.

The Scania city bus model - Scania K 250 UB4x2 - is configured with a low-floor chassis and safety features such as handicap access capability for all passengers. It is equipped with a ramp for full wheelchair access and two docking slots with seat belts for safe wheelchair anchorage. The body is made of aluminium to reduce weight and fuel consumption, as well as to extend vehicle life.
