Irizar UK delivers i6s Efficient coach to Wiltshire

21 September 2023 #Bus and Coach

A new Irizar Integral i6s Efficient coach has gone into service with returning customer Nigel and Kim’s Tours of Westbury.

The 14-metre, 42-seat tri-axle coach is propelled by DAFs MX13 390kw, OBD-E Euro-6 engine, with an output of 530hp, and is coupled to ZF’s Traxon, 12-speed automated gearbox.

It replaces a 2015 Irizar Integral i6 as the company’s only coach.

Passenger seat back and cushion laterals are leather-trimmed, and the seats are fitted with T-type footrests, magazine holders, and seat-back tables.

Other passenger refinements include blue aisle lights, USB charging points, and a rear servery supplied by AD Coach Systems.

There are also extra-tint windows, chrome vinyls, and exterior LED lighting.

Launched in 2022, the i6S Efficient is based on the Integral platform and sees a reduction of 900kgs on the previous model, achieved mainly through a transition to using high-strength steel and modern composites.

An optimised layout also helps achieve greater internal space.

Aerodynamic coefficient has seen a reduction of 30% and combined with the weight saving and other adjustments results in a 13% reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Julie Hartley, Sales Director for Irizar UK, said: “As an owner-operator, spending many weeks a year on tour in Europe and the UK, it is essential that the Westbrook’s have the confidence in the aftersales support that we offer.

“I know that they value this very much, having built strong relationships with the team, and that this has been a key factor in selecting another Irizar Integral.”
