MAN delivers 200 chassis to Singapore
MAN Truck & Bus has received a follow-up order from SMRT Buses Ltd for 200 MAN bus chassis for installation in public transport in Singapore. With this order, the MAN fleet of Singapore Mass Rapid Transit (SMRT) Buses Ltd has grown to 400 vehicles.
The low-floor chassis with a body length of 12 metres are particularly suited to city bus construction with their stepless floors. The air suspension on the front and rear axle with kneeling function and the 320 HP-strong D20 engine in Euro V version, guarantee comfortable and efficient public transport. The environmentally-friendly engine technology based on the continuous control exhaust-gas recirculation (EGR) system saves space and weight, with its especially low fuel consumption being a compelling factor.
Since 2011, 200 buses of this chassis type have been deployed for public transport in the Southeast Asian island and city state. The delivery of this follow-up order will be concluded by the end of 2013.
