Setra secures largest ever order from Sweden
The order has come about as the result of a tender which has been won by four bus operators from the province of Småland in southern Sweden. No less than 50 of the buses are to go to the company Karlssonbuss i Vaggeryd and the subsidiaries Sven Carlsson Trafik, Moheda Buss and Grimslövsbuss. The remaining 15 vehicles are to be brought into service by the bus companies Gerts Busstrafik, Tingsryds Buss and Ryssbybygdens Buss. Driven by Euro V engines featuring BlueTec technology, the vehicles are fitted with double doors at the rear point of entry, wheelchair lifts, monitoring cameras and a modern infotainment system, among other features.
"We are extremely pleased to be able to support the bus operators with an attractive overall package, which in addition to a high technical specification for the vehicles also comprises a comprehensive service offering. The buses of the Setra MultiClass 400 series meet all of the requirements of the customers and will contribute to making the local public transport in the region more efficient, more comfortable and safer", explains Till Oberwörder, Director of Marketing, Sales & After-Sales of Daimler Buses, commenting on the large order. In Sweden, sales of new and used Setra vehicles as well as the Omniplus Service Centre come under the umbrella of EvoBus Sverige A.B., located in Vetlanda in southern Sweden.
