French department of Calvados opts for Mercedes-Benz Intouro buses
Economical overall concept, thanks to tried and tested components
Since its market launch and the start of production in 2007, the Mercedes-Benz Intouro city bus has already proved highly popular in many central and eastern European countries. In the middle of this year, Mercedes-Benz expanded its bus and coach portfolio to cover western Europe as well.
Intouro is the name given to an economical raised-floor vehicle that has been specially designed for rural-service applications such as rural regular-service use, regular school-bus services and internal company transport. When it comes to delivering rapid and sustained profitability, the Intouro combines an economical approach to purchase and operation with an outstanding price/performance ratio. Long-lasting components, robust technology and a standard equipment package aimed primarily at rural-service use are the defining characteristics of the Intouro fully equipped bus. The Intouro is manufactured by Daimler’s Turkish subsidiary, Mercedes-Benz Türk A.S., at the state-of-the-art Hoşdere plant near Istanbul.
The Mercedes-Benz Intouro buses delivered to the Calvados department seat 59 passengers, and offer an additional space for a wheelchair. Each of the vehicles is also equipped with a breath-alcohol testing unit for the bus driver, which releases the engine for starting.
Like all other Mercedes-Benz buses and coaches, the Intouro can rely on the comprehensive Europe-wide Omniplus service network for its servicing and maintenance requirements, as well as on the many Mercedes-Benz authorised dealers and company-owned sales and service outlets.
