VDL EXPANDS FUTURA RANGE WITH FHD2-135
VDL Bus & Coach has expanded the Futura range with a new length version, the FHD2-135, featuring a length of 13,5 meters. The advantage of this length is the huge luggage space of over 12 m3 and the maximum seating arrangement of 63+1+1. This arrangement is unique on two axles. Apart from the FHD2-135, VDL also offers the FMD2 in a13.5 metre length
The new size fits into the recent changes of the legal ruling. Due to a recent relaxation of regulatory restrictions, the maximum length of a two-axle vehicle is now 13.5 metres. Thanks to a sharp steering angle of 60 degrees, the FHD2-135 is very agile and easy to manoeuvre.
The FHD2-135 comes standard with a DAF MX-11 271 (271 kW – 370 hp) engine and is optionally available with a DAF MX-11 320 (320 kW – 440 hp) engine. A low kerb weight, reduced fuel consumption, high passenger capacity, lots of luggage space and low cost are the strong points of this new Futura version, claims VDL.
