BUSWORLD 2017: EIGHT UNITS INCLUDING THE NEW NEXT GENERATION AND THE STRADA M2

2017-09-20

Three years after launching the first Next, a new integral version of the model will be released at Busworld.

The Next was launched in 2014 and since then, it has gained a place on the minibus market, for its fully versatile, innovative design. The current range has four versions in four lengths (from 7 to 10m) and multiple interior distributions (from 27 to 41 seats with PRM options), which allows it to adapt to the needs of any service and operator.

The new vehicle shares with its predecessors the elegant exterior design and a very spacious interior, conceived in detail in order to provide a high comfort area for the passengers. It also stands for its great luggage capacity.

A new concept of integral development

During the development of the project, the focus was placed on achieving the perfect integration of all the vehicle's elements. This led to the design of a full minibus, where the comfort, design, security, quality, and performance have been worked on as a whole.

The driver's area was created from scratch in order to create a specific dashboard for the bus driver. It will be the most powerful unit of the series, with a 264CV PACCAR PX-7 engine.

The result is a new generation model, conceived to satisfy the driver, the passengers, and the operator.

Eight vehicles with the possibility to test the Next model

In addition to the new Next, we will bring to this event a large display of our minibus range, one of the largest on the market.

Our brand new Strada M2 will be shown at the show. It is a vehicle with a length of 5.9 m, a capacity of up to 9 passengers, a high comfort VIP interior and a surprising boot volume. It has been designed bearing in mind the hotels, transfer companies and operators that need a custom-made vehicle for the transfer of small groups.

Two Mobi versions will be exposed at Kortrijk: low entry and school. The Mobi model is a highly functional, economic and reliable vehicle concept built on an Iveco Daily 70 chassis.  It is available in different versions, multiple distributions and is adaptable to PRM. It is ideal for urban, intercity, short distance and school services. It has a maximum capacity of 33 seats.

With a unique design, the Mago 2 model is a reference in quality and elegance across Europe. It is perfect for tourist and VIP services. It provides high-level performance and has a capacity of up to 32 passengers. At Busworld, INDCAR will exhibit a unit of the special edition Mago 2 F1Special Edition.

The Wing will be another of the vehicles seen at the show. It is well-known for its quality, reliability, and comfort. It is sold in multiple interior distributions and adapted to PRM. Built on an Iveco Daily 70C chassis, it is able to transport up to 28 passengers. 

Another one selected for the occasion is the Next L7, the smaller version of the model, with a 7m length and a capacity for 27 passengers.

At the beginning of the year, it was awarded the 2017 Microbus of the year in Spain, for its surprising mixture of power, maneuverability, comfort and luggage compartment

Last but not least, a Next L9 built on a MAN N14 4850 chassis will be available at the test driving area.
