First Norfolk & Suffolk are set to launch their new Excel service using a new fleet of stylish ADL Enviro400 vehicles built on a Scania Euro VI diesel chassis.
First have worked with some of the bus industry’s leading designers, suppliers and manufacturers over the last two years to develop a bus designed and built especially for excel.
The Scania chassis, with its 9-litre engine, is designed to deliver outstanding performance, reliability, fuel economy and safety on longer and more demanding routes, whilst meeting the highest current industry emissions standards.
Build quality, ergonomics and style are all integral to the Alexander Dennis bodywork, which also incorporates some of the best comfort and safety features available on buses today.
First say "As well as listening to the great feedback we’ve had from passengers, drivers and stakeholders all along the excel route, our research and development for these vehicles has taken us far and wide across the UK, with the aim of bringing together a whole host of features, some already established and some brand new, that will allow us to bring you a new standard in interurban bus travel."
The new buses are due to hit the road from Monday 17th February.
