38 Tourismos for Shearings
Shearings Group has placed the largest ever order for Mercedes-Benz Tourismos in the UK. It will see the operator take delivery of 38 Tourismos this month. The order includes 23 12m Tourismo Euro6 coaches being delivered in National Holidays livery and 15 13m Tourismo Euro6 models entering service for the first time in a striking new version of the Shearings Holidays livery. As well as stylish upholstery and generous legroom, the new vehicles will feature individual overhead service controls and full air conditioning together with arm and footrests.
Chief Executive, Shearings Group, Denis Wormwell, said, ‘This represents a significant investment for us, close to £10m. Working with the team at EvoBus and Mercedes-Benz Financial Services we have been able to tailor a package specifically for our business. We are really pleased with the presentation, comfort and safety standards of the new Euro6 specification Tourismo and are delighted to continue working closely with the team at EvoBus following the delivery of over 200 new coaches over the last five years.’
General Manager of Mercedes-Benz Coach Sales in the UK, Jonathan Prime, said, ‘It is a pleasure to work with business partners who put customer satisfaction at the heart of everything they do. We too strive to provide our customers with the best products and services and are confident that the latest Tourismo models will deliver on safety, comfort, quality and economy.’
The 38 Tourismos will be delivered to the Shearings Group by Mercedes-Benz Coach Sales at EvoBus (UK).
