DB Regio Bus of Germany Orders 150 Mercedes and Setra Buses
They have been chosen because the two manufacturers are regarded as the two best in this field, thanks in no small part to their BlueTec SCR technology, which makes all these buses Euro V compliant - Setra are even developing Euro VI compliant engines. According to Daimler’s Head of Buses Marketing, “the order confirms that even in tough economic times our customers want our high-quality and environmentally friendly buses [. . .] Our vehicles are therefore making a valuable contribution to public transportation.”
All the buses will be low-floor models, with either two or three sets of doors - the most common of which will be the latter, as it offers larger inside space and is capable of accommodating more passengers.
