Daimler Buses North America has delivered three Setra TopClass S 417 touring coaches to the Canadian Navy in Ottawa. These S 417 are versions specially designed for the Canadian Navy and are to be used in the Ontario, Quebec and Prairie regions.
On the outside of the coaches vivid graphics depicting warships and Navy personnel at work act as an attention magnet. In the interior of the vehicles there are electronics kiosks and computer systems to provide information about employment opportunities in the Canadian Navy. This is the first time this customer takes delivery of an S 417 USA with access at the rear. Normally, vehicles for the North American market only have an access at the front of the vehicle.
The vehicles, with a length of 13.72 metres, are powered by a Series 60 Detroit Diesel six-cylinder in-line engine with an output of 339 kW (461 hp). These engines deliver a maximum torque of 2100 Nm at 1100 rpm.
“We hope to further consolidate our market position in North America through this top-class order,” says Lothar Holder, head of Setra coach sales at EvoBus GmbH.
