Coach operator Centurion Travel has taken delivery of a new high capacity Irizar i4 Integral coach for use in the City of Bath, as it invests further to meet Euro-6 standards.
The i4, measured at 13.6m on three axles, is powered by a 367 bhp, MX11 270 DAF engine driven through ZF’s Traxon, 12-speed automated gearbox, that further enhances the economy of the vehicle.
Bath introduced its Clean Air Zone (CAZ) 12 months ago to tackle air pollution from nitrate oxides (NOx) in the city. At the same time, Centurion Travel has invested nearly £2 million in upgrading its fleet to the latest and cleanest Euro-6 vehicles, enabling full access to the city without penalty.
The i4 bus has 80 seats in a three plus two configuration, the result of a slightly rising flat floor. It also includes a Masats KS7 semi-automatic wheelchair lift positioned in the luggage compartment for side loading.
Meanwhile, its rear steer ZF axle enables its longer tri-axle to access tight spaces when required.
Passenger comfort and safety is provided by three-point seatbelts and individual service sets, fitted to the underside of the luggage racks, to control the powerful Hispacold climate control system.
Entertainment is provided through a Bosch Smart Series radio, CD, PA system with Bluetooth compatibility.
Steve Spiller, Director at Centurion Travel, said: “The i4 is certainly turning heads and people are already asking questions about it.
“Everyone loves the interior design and it feels like you are walking into a posh cinema.”
