One of three new Euro 5 coaches to join the fleet of Lincoln-based P. C. Coaches is a tri-axle K400EB with OmniExpress bodywork, supplied by Scania Great Britain (01909 210210). .
Like its two sisters, also Scanias, the OmniExpress is powered by a 13-litre, 400bhp engine coupled to an OptiCruise automated gearbox. It has 63 half-leather seats with three-point belts, a Bosch Professional Line audio-visual system, reversing camera and centre toilet.
Says company owner Peter Smith: â€œFuel consumption is a concern for operators and we find Scanias to be consistently excellent, returning around 11-12mpg.â€
