Meticulously designed with world-class German engineering, travelers can now cruise peacefully while indulging in a host of plush features. Welcome aboard a lavish expedition.
Super High Deck
State-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz air suspension enables the SHD 2441 to cruise through rough Indian roads without even letting the passengers know a bit about it. The banana beam structure along with positioning of air bellows nearer to the side walls enable it to absorb and dampen rough road effects. Inherited from Brazil, this suspension unit has been tested rigorously on Indian ground conditions and modified accordingly before being fitted in the vehicle.
During long journeys, the wide door and gangway gives ample space for comfortable movement in the bus. The remarkable flat floor construction enables easy movement in the spacious interiors. The widest seat pitch of 960 mm offers great comfort to passengers to stretch their legs and relax while travelling.
The Mercedes-Benz coach is equipped with revolutionary safety measures with an Electronic Braking System (EBS) including disc brakes with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR). The Electronic Stability Control detects and reduces loss of traction. All these lead to a more confident control and emphasized vehicle stability for quicker cornering and easier avoidance maneuvers.
With a stellar range of active and passive systems seamlessly integrated for a completely pleasurable and confident drive, the Mercedes-Benz bus achieves a holistic approach for a safe journey. The elegantly designed robust aluminique body meets the most stringent international safety standards for roll over strength and considerably lowers the center of gravity of the vehicle, allowing for overall vehicle stability. Furthermore, the Mercedes-Benz bus is the lightest in its class which enhances its unbeatable fuel efficiency and the refreshing aerodynamic body styling lends in drag reduction.
Super Low end torque (SLT) @ 1100 rpm ensures better pick up. Peak torque starts at 1100 rpm and a higher flat torque range (@950 – 1500 rpm) guarantees lesser gear shifts leading to higher fuel efficiency.
