Following the introduction of a number of new models Scania’s line-up of Euro 4 buses and coaches for the UK market is now complete. All chassis and most body/chassis combinations are available now, with all options being available from September 2006. Additionally, Scania is now offering a full two year repair and maintenance package with every new coach sold.

“With a vehicle for virtually every type of passenger carrying application, our bus and coach range is more comprehensive than ever before,” comments Scania (Great Britain) Limited’s Sales Director – Bus, Coach and Engines, Geoff Bell.  “Add to that the nationwide network of Bus & Coach Specialists we have established as part of the Scania UK service network, plus the 1,000 more Scania service centres throughout Europe, and I believe our overall product offering today is truly second-to-none.”
