6000th Mercedes-Benz Intouro Delivered
Since that in itself is not exactly worldwide-worthy news, you should learn that one of the three buses is the 6000th Intouro made by the Mercedes-Benz Bus and Coach unit, so in other words it's a rolling milestone vehicle.
The 6000 buses delivered in just six years of production make the Mercedes-Benz Intouro one of the most popular rural-service buses in the world. The raised-floor was specifically configured for inter-city transport use such as school bus services or regular rural-service.
The three buses delivered to Willms Reinhold Verkehrsgesellschaft mbH will be used on school bus routes, each one being equipped with 51 seats, a pram/pushchair area opposite the second door and a full-length grab rail.
The 12.14 meter-long Intouros are powered by a horizontally-mounted inline six-cylinder engine with BlueTec diesel technology that develops 299 hp, while the transmission is a six-speed automatic.
