Scania Irizar i3

Available in body lengths from 10.9 to 15-metres, the Scania Irizar i3 is a flexible, high specification service bus and the latest addition to the long-standing and well established UK Scania Irizar range. The show vehicle is a 12-metre example based upon a Scania K 250 UB4x2 chassis featuring Scania’s nine-litre, 250 horsepower Euro-6 engine and a ZF EcoLife1 six-speed fully automatic gearbox driving through a Scania ADA1300 rear axle with a differential ratio of 4.88:1.

The vehicle’s low entry body includes an ergonomically-designed driver’s area and 39 Kiel Indigo seats and six tip-up seats. Entry is by way of twin front doors with wheelchair access provided by a Masats manual ramp. The body also includes convector heating, four hopper windows, detachable side panels and an emergency exit side door. CCTV wiring with preparation for eight cameras is part of the vehicle’s standard specification, Mobitec destination equipment is fitted at the front, rear and side and Irizar has supplied the vehicle’s stainless steel diesel tank.
