Shorter Scania coach aimed at growing UK market segment

09 October 2019

A new shorter version of Scania’s popular Touring HD coach is to be introduced in late May 2020, the manufacturer has confirmed.

Launched in the UK in 2015, there are now around 200 of the original coaches in operation across the country.

The new model, which will be 10.9-metres long and can be configured with up to 45 seats, is aimed at a growing market segment.

Lee Wale, UK Retail Sales Manager for Scania comments, “We are delighted to announce this new shorter length Touring coach, which will enter a market segmentation that is growing in demand. The coach utilises the full-size Scania K 360 IB chassis, which is standard on the 12.1-metre version of the Touring and which many operators favour for its reliability, high level of specification and fuel efficiency.”
