The Russian Embassy is the first customer in the UK to take delivery of a Neoplan Tourliner with a Euro 6d engine. The coach is also the first Tourliner for the UK with the manufacturer’s revised B-pillar arrangement that improves the view to the side for passengers in the front row.
Supplied by MAN Truck and Bus UK, the Tourliner in question is a 13.4m tri-axle P20 model with 55 seats. USB charging points are at all positions and it also has a drinks machine, a DAB radio with Bluetooth and a satellite navigation system.
The 12.4-litre D26 engine is rated at 470bhp. In the Neoplan Tourliner for the Russian Embassy it is coupled to a ZF Traxon automated manual gearbox, but MAN also has Tourliners with the same engine in stock at its Trafford Park base with the ZF EcoLife automatic gearbox.
