Mercedes-Benz is a reputed brand, and based on our evaluation, we have inducted these coaches in our fleet. We are keen on trying new products in the market, keeping in mind, passenger luxury and comfort. Bengaluru – Belagavi (505 kms) is our second phase of route expansion with Mercedes Benz SHD multiaxle coaches. We have already introduced Bengaluru – Madurai (480 kms) and Bengaluru – Coimbatore (360 kms) routes with the same coaches, in last quarter of 2016.
Sharing details on the product features that impressed SRS, Mr Chinmay went on to say,
These new coaches come with a new driveline and we wanted to run them on shorter routes to evaluate their performance on road. Being the longest coach in the country, it ensures a higher number of seats and increased legroom. The front fascia of the coach shows Mercedes elegant craftsmanship and exquisitely sculpted body with polyurethane based paint make for an exceptional finish. The spacious 15 cu. m luggage boot and its clear opening height of 0.9 m help take care of the passenger travel needs while on the road.
