Three Tourliners for MAN stand at Euro Bus Expo
MAN Bus & Coach UK will be exhibiting three Neoplan Tourliners at the NEC show next week. Two will be customer vehicles, while the third will be a stock vehicle which is designed to showcase an onboard CCTV package offered by MAN.
Both the customer vehicles will be Tourliner VIP models. Doncaster-based Buckley’s Tours will have a Tourliner P21, 12m, 49-seat executive VIP specification which has an MAN D26 440bhp engine and ZF Assist transmission. The vehicle is to be used on both UK and European holiday routes. Buckley’s Tours now operates five Tourliners.
And for GH Watts of Leicester there will be a 13.26m Tourliner P20 tri-axle with 53 seats and executive VIP specification. The coach is powered by an MAN D26 480bhp engine with ZF Assist transmission. GH Watts also operates five Tourliners.
The stock MAN coach will be a Tourliner P22 tri-axle, 13.8m, 61-seat executive Select specification. It is also powered by an MAN D26 440bhp engine with ZF Assist transmission.
“Two of the vehicles have already joined our customers’ fleets, while the third will be brought by MAN and will display the benefits of the onboard CCTV for drivers and passengers,” says Wayne Ulph, MAN general manager of bus and coach. “As well as representatives from the MAN bus and coach team we will have experts from our telematics, warranty, finance and aftersales teams on hand to speak to old and prospective new customers.”
“We are also excited to reveal that members of the MAN TGE team will also be attending to offer information about the potential for the minibus market.”
