Holger Suffel, Sales, Service & Parts Vice President, Daimler Buses: "With this contract, not only do we increase the volume of buses delivered, we also undertake to carry out the maintenance of the vehicles. This underscores our expertise as suppliers of professional services."
The Mercedes-Benz O 500 RSD with fully-electronic engine management is powered by a 260 kW engine. The vehicles feature a fully automatic transmission with an integrated retarder which has recently been incorporated in the product portfolio. The automatic transmission is ideal for driving in the city, offering numerous advantages in terms of ride comfort and safety. As the transmission shifts automatically if required, the driver can concentrate on the traffic and on driving, without stress.
Safety and comfort for the passengers are top priorities. For this reason all the seats 52, or 61, are equipped with seat belts. Nor will passengers miss out on entertainment either when riding these fully climatised coaches, as they feature, DVD and MP3 players, for instance, as well as screens and microphone connections.
