Spanish manufacturer, Indcar has just sold 11 minibuses to the Norwegian operator, Vy Buss, which is confident that the Covid-19 virus will not impact negatively on their business. It is part of a larger order of 34 buses.
The minibuses will be the Mobi City L8.5 model, built on Iveco Daily 70C18 chassis, with its Hi-Matic automatic transmission and TELMA electric brake. The vehicles will have a 2 + 2 distribution, with capacity for 34 passengers (26 seated and 8 standing).
Indcar has been awarded the manufacture of 11 interurban minibuses for the province of Buskerud, also in Norway. The deal is part of the fleet renewal programme that the operator Vy Buss is carrying out in the area. There will be 34 buses, out of which 11 will be minibuses.
The minibuses will again be of the Mobi City L8.5 model, built on Iveco Daily 70C18 chassis, with Hi-Matic automatic transmission and TELMA electric brake. The vehicles will have a 2 + 2 distribution, with capacity for 34 passengers (26 seated and 8 standing).
They will be equipped with USB inputs to charge mobile phones and the passenger seats will have Isofix, to anchor baby seats during the travel. The driver’s seat is ergonomic and with air suspension. Since they are vehicles for the Nordic market, the heating and insulation are extra for the harsh weather conditions. The minibus is equipped with double glazed windows throughout the vehicle and a heated windscreen. In addition, it has protection systems such as a double automatic fire extinguishing system or Alcolock, which prevents the vehicle from starting without the driver taking a breathalyser test. The Mobi City urban minibuses have a rear lowering mechanism and ample space for wheelchairs and for people with reduced mobility.
The first minibuses will enter Indcar’s production line in the coming weeks and will be delivered in April 2021. Indcar has previously made urban vehicles for Nordic countries, such as Denmark, Greenland or Finland. The Nordic market is a growth market for Indcar and one of the most strategic due to the high demand for urban and intercity transport minibuses.
