Buses by Mercedes-Benz have been characterised by reliability and economy for decades. The new Tourismo goes a step further in the direction of future and sustainability. It backs state-of-the-art and well-honed standard technology with a high standard of quality in equal measure. Thanks to further developed and especially efficient drives as well as aerodynamic optimisations the consumption of the models is again reduced. At the same time, efficiency is increased – for optimum total cost of ownership. This means: maximum economy at maximum driving comfort.
You can do several things to drive the bus more economically: around one third of the costs can be actively influenced. With new optional extras such as the foresighted Predictive Powertrain Control (PPC) cruise control for automatic and manual transmissions or Eco Driver Feedback (EDF) with individual tips on driving style your driver can further reduce the energy consumption.
The Tourismo offers your company economic advantages in investment, consumption, maintenance and residual value. In the Tourismo everything is designed to minimise downtime periods. Even long maintenance intervals with oil changes after up to 120,000 kilometres* ensure the vehicle can operate on the road for long times at a stretch.
On the road, the Tourismo ensures good figures with every kilometre – due to its special efficiency. In comparison to the predecessor model a smaller energy consumption can be seen with identical equipment. This is a joy not only for the balance sheet, but also the environment – thanks to a perfect interplay of vehicle technology, intelligent analysis of the driving style and an adjusted OMNIplus driver training.
