Due to positive performance experience with three Mercedes-Benz Tourismos delivered in June 2015, Gillingham based The Kings Ferry has added four more Tourismos to its fleet. The new coaches feature destination displays, wheelchair lifts, 49 seats in Luxline upholstery, USB charging points, Wi-Fi and dual 19inch monitors paired with professional Bosch audio/visual systems. They are powered by the Mercedes-Benz OM 470, 290Kw Euro6 engine paired with six-speed ZF EcoLife automatic gearboxes. The operator has also placed a further order for ten identical specification Tourismos to be delivered later in the year.
The four Tourismos were supplied by Mercedes-Benz Coach Sales at EvoBus (UK).
