Johnsons’ new Irizar i8 is a Luxury Traveller

Johnsons Coaches has received a 13.2m 43-seat tri-axle Irizar Integral i8 coach for its own Luxury Traveller programme.

The new coach is finished in the Luxury Traveller distinctive livery complemented by black-tint windows and LED exterior lighting.

Other passenger amenities include a centre sunken toilet with an electric hand dryer, and entertainment provided by the Bosch Smart Series audio-visual system with monitors located in the front and centre of the saloon. The seating is equipped with a lateral displacement system, magazine-holders, multi-position footrests and aircraft-style tables. USB charging points and onboard wi-fi are also available onboard. A servery area has been installed over the toilet top, featuring a Nespresso coffee machine and a hot and cold water tap. It also has a built-in vacuum cleaner.

The coach is powered by a DAF MX-13 355 483hp engine, driving through the ZF Traxon automated manual gearbox. Safety features include road and reversing cameras, and active cruise-control.

The new i8 is prepared for PSVAR. Johnsons Coaches have opted for the digital camera vision system once again in place of traditional mirrors after taking delivery one of the first mirrorless i8 coaches last year.

Irizar UK supplied the coach.
