City Circle (UK) has confirmed an order for 17 new Scania Irizar i6S coaches for delivery in 2019, taking the total number of Scania vehicles purchased by the operator to 98 since 2013.

Confirmed at Euro Bus Expo, the latest order includes 15 Scania K 410 EB6x2*4 chassis with Irizar i6S bodywork at 13.2m overall length. The vehicles have 53 reclining passenger seats with leather and extra padded flaps, centre sunken toilet/washroom and Frenzel kitchen located at the centre continental exit. Additional features include reversing and road cameras and integrated satellite navigation.

City Circle has also ordered two 108m-long Scania K 360 EB4x2 chassis with Irizar i6S bodywork. These will feature 36 reclining seats with half-leather trim, rear floor-mounted toilet and washroom and a servery at the rear of the coach with built-in units for fridges and drinks fitted by AD Coach Systems.

All 17 new vehicles have dark tinted glass and Alcoa Dura-Bright alloy wheels as well as wi-fi, CCTV and USB charging points for all the passengers. All the vehicles are equipped with Scania’s fully automated Opticruise transmission.

The first coaches will join the already all-Scania fleet in March 2019. Thirteen of the vehicles are part of a fleet replacement programme and four are additions to the fleet.

The vehicles will be used for the company’s incoming tourism and corporate charters.
