3 VDL Bus & Coach premieres at IAA 2016

VDL Bus & Coach will introduce no fewer than 3 premieres during IAA 2016. The new VDL Futura FHD2-106 is the latest member of the Futura family. With this 10.6-metre length variant VDL Bus & Coach is targeting the VIP segment. The FHD2-106 at VDL Bus & Coach’s stand can accommodate 34+1+1 people and has extremely luxurious, comfortable seats in a face-to-face arrangement.
Of the new Citea LLE length variants introduced in May, the 9.9-metre version in a 27+2+1 configuration will be presented to the public for the first time. This Citea LLE-99 has been specifically designed for sparsely populated areas and for scheduled services with clear peak and off-peak times.
The VDL MidBasic Electric will also be premiered during IAA. The VDL MidBasic Electric is a community bus with an exceptionally innovative, fully electric powertrain.
IAA Nutzfahrzeuge will be held from 22 to 29 September 2016 in Hanover, Germany. The VDL Bus & Coach stand is in Hall 11, stand number C37.



Complete product range
Besides the new VDL Futura FHD2-106, VDL Bus & Coach will also be showing the VDL Futura FDD2-141, a 14.1-metre-long double-decker. This double-decker offers both the discerning holidaymaker and the intercity business traveller a comfortable and fitting transport solution. The use of a newly developed upper-deck floor made of lightweight sandwich material has made it possible to achieve a generous 1.86 m of standing height on the lower deck. A true innovation is the improvement of the driver's upward viewing angle, achieved by sloping the floor of the upper deck upwards at the windscreen. This gives a feeling of having plenty of space and an optimal view. The FDD2-141 on show is fitted with 83+1+1 seating and has space for 1 wheelchair.
VDL Bus & Coach will present the Futura FMD2-135 in the outdoor area. This multifunctional coach, which can also be deployed for intercity transport and on scheduled services, is fitted with 59+1+1 seating.
Also in the outdoor area will be a MidCity and a MidEuro. The MidCity is designed as a line bus with 19+1+1 seating, a maximum of 8 standing places and 1 wheelchair space. The MidEuro has 16+1+1 seating and is fitted with every luxury and comfort to make travelling as pleasant as possible.

Take a test drive to experience first hand the ever-captivating ride in a purely electric bus. During IAA 2016 test drives can be taken on the VDL Citea Electric and the brand-new VDL MidBasic Electric.
