Caledonian takes 22-plate Tourismos
Promptly for 22 registration plates on 1 March, Travel Caledonian has taken delivery of five new Mercedes-Benz Tourismos from EvoBus (UK). The 13.1m vehicles will support the return of Caledonian Leisure’s coach touring programme into Europe from 8 March. They offer comfortable travel in 53 reclining seats and provide customers with reassurance that the air delivered by the coaches’ air conditioning units has passed through EvoBus’ ActivFilter anti-viral protection process that is now standard across the Tourismo range.
Powered by the Mercedes-Benz OM470 Euro VI diesel engine, three of the new coaches have ZF EcoLife transmission, the other two are equipped with Mercedes-Benz’ Powershift transmission. They bring the Travel Caledonian fleet to over 50 vehicles, the majority of them Tourismos.
Taking delivery of the new vehicles, Caledonian Leisure MD, Graham Rogers, referred to the importance of the Mercedes-Benz three-point star to the company in putting the customer first, “all our experience with Mercedes-Benz suggests customers love the ride and quality, and so do our drivers.”
