Following the Stagecoach announcement about their new vehicle orders for 2012/13, which included eleven Plaxton Interdeck Volvo B11 coaches, Plaxton have now issued a press release about the new vehicles.
The new coach will be based on the well proven stainless steel technology of Panther and Elite, but will usher in an entirely new structure to accommodate the 3.9m high vehicle and offers the potential for additional models in the future.
Plaxton say "There is no need to fit a wheelchair lift, which benefits users in that they have much better access, and benefits operators by reducing maintenance and training requirements. There will be the ability to offer up to 72 seats, but with the flexibility to offer a wide range of seating layouts.
It is expected that the new coach will be revealed at Euro Bus Expo at the NEC Birmingham in November.
