Moseley companies set to fill gap in 29-seat segment with Iveco-based model to meet ‘strong demand’

Introduction of the Wing returns an Iveco Daily option to Moseley group

The Iveco Daily-based Indcar Wing midicoach will be among a number of vehicles making its right-hand debut at Euro Bus Expo (EBE) on 30 October-1 November. It will be supplied to UK operators by the Moseley companies and the first has been sold to Kendal-based Heron Travel.

Built on a 7,200kg GVW chassis and seating up to 29 passengers along with a courier, the Wing returns a Daily-based option to the Moseley line-up. It will complement the Next L8 and Next L9 models based on Mercedes-Benz Atego chassis.

“There is a strong demand for midicoaches in the 29-seat segment of the market and we believe that the Wing is an ideal replacement for the Sitcar Beluga,” says Moseley (PCV) Managing Director Tim Fairless.

“We have already had a good response to the Wing from operators and we look forward to showing the first right-hand drive example at EBE,” he adds. An order for stock vehicles has already been placed by the Moseley companies.

The Wing supersedes the Daily-based Sitcar Voyager in Moseley’s range. It is 8.48m long and 2.40m wide and it includes a rear boot with 3.92m3 of capacity. Iveco’s Hi-Matic eight-speed automatic gearbox is standard, as is rear air suspension.

Besides the standard specification, the vehicle to be displayed at EBE will additionally come with USB charging points at every seat, a reversing camera and pre-wiring for a fridge.

Joining the Wing on Indcar’s stand at EBE will be a Next L8 with 33 seats.
