New Tourismo M for Lakeside Coaches
Based in Ellesmere, Shropshire, family-run Lakeside Coaches has taken delivery of a further Mercedes-Benz Tourismo M coach built to Touring Plus specification. The latest addition complements a number of Mercedes-Benz vehicles in the Lakeside fleet, including a 2014 Tourismo and 2013 Tourismo, both supplied new.
The company has an operating history of over 35 years and is still headed by original managing director and chairman John Davies.
Its new Tourismo M seats 49 in Luxline leather-fabric upholstery, and features arm rests, foot rests, fold-out tray tables and air-conditioning linked to overhead service controls. Dual 19-in LCD displays paired with a Bosch audio/visual system and pre-installations for 4G Wi-Fi are also included.
Power is delivered by an OM 470, 290 kW engine, coupled to a 6-speed ZF Ecolife automatic gearbox.
The new Tourismo M delivered to Lakeside Coaches was supplied by Mercedes-Benz Coach Sales at EvoBus (UK).
