Irizar i6S coach wins Spain Coach of the Year
The new Irizar i6S coach has won the 2017 Coach of the Year award in Spain, the seventh time the company has been recognised. This year is the third consecutive year Irizar has won the award.
“We just have to go back a few years to see the great technological evolution and industrial innovation developed within the Grupo Irizar,” says José Manuel Orcasitas, managing director and CEO. “Today Irizar offers a wide array of products and technological solutions ranging from 100 per cent electric buses, to hybrid technology in class II models for urban and interurban services, along with conventional buses and coaches, which allows us to cover the public transport sector’s full range of needs, both in occasional transport as well as public, urban, inter-urban and long-distance, and being leaders in sustainable mobility.”
The new Irizar i6S replaces the Irizar PB and has been developed in the wake of the i8 models.
The front design includes new LED lights and integration of the adaptive cruise control system. Irizar points out more pronounced and aggressive lines for the body shaping, sculpted on rigid and soft surfaces.
An optional MMI system, exclusive to Irizar, enables the handling of all systems through the use of a joystick, buttons for quick access to menus and a 7-in colour touch-screen for the driver.
