At 2018 November 8th ISUZU Bus invited representatives of passenger transport of different cities and other guests to get acquainted with the latest Isuzu city bus – Novociti Life. In Vilnius, this bus stopped while taking part in an impressive EURO Tour, in which 25 European countries will be visited and after 50 days will complete 20 000 km. The Isuzu premiere was not only inspected, but also tested at the adjacent extreme driving range.
“Novociti Life” conception was based on the basics of the bus –
- for people;
- for city;
- for life.
This compact, low-ended, 8-meter bus features a capacity of up to 60 passengers (different seating options are possible according to customers’ needs) and special maneuverability in small and narrow streets of cities (turning radius 8,900 mm). At the rear of the ISUZU Novociti Life, a 4.5 FPT (Fiat powertrain) NEF 4 engine (186 HP and 680 Nm) is installed. The access to the engine is particularly comfortable, since the rear covers are very wide open, so the engine can be reached even at an angle of 180 degrees.
