Mellor has sales success in Kiel
Mellor has announced the delivery of three Sigma 7s to Kiel in Germany.
The delivery marks a significant milestone for Mellor’s expansion into international markets.
Throughout the process, Mellor and Jebsen & Jessen worked closely with regional transport company KVG to understand its specific operational requirements and optimise the configuration of the Sigma 7 buses. As part of the process, KVG’s bus operators underwent a three-month training course using one of Mellor’s demonstration vehicles ahead of the delivery of the new buses.
The electric KVG Sigma 7 buses have been tailored to seat 14 passengers with one wheelchair space. They are each equipped with Mellor’s cold climate adaptions, enabling them to withstand the harsh weather conditions typically experienced in northern Germany. These enhancements include a powerful driver and saloon HVAC system, along with a battery thermal pre-conditioning system, ensuring an extended driving range in cold temperatures.
“We’ll continue to further enhance and refine our electric buses to meet the evolving needs of customers” – Max Eschmann, Group Business Development Manager at Mellor
Max Eschmann, Group Business Development Manager at Mellor, said: “Delivering the three Sigma 7 vehicles to Kiel is a significant moment for us at Mellor. The delivery was a result of working closely with our international partners to understand the German market needs to progress Mellor’s journey into its transport landscape. It will help us to deliver both sustainable and accessible transport to passengers in Kiel.
“At Mellor we’re committed to strengthening our presence in the German market and we’re looking forward to receiving the feedback from KVG and its passengers in the coming months on the Sigma 7 vehicles. We’ll continue to further enhance and refine our electric buses to meet the evolving needs of customers and support the transition to greener, sustainable transportation solutions across the DACH region.”
